Juvenile Green Mamba (Dendroaspis angusticeps) from the KZN south coast.   A bright green snake that inhabits coastal KZN and is usually only found within a few kilometres of the sea. It is often confused with harmless green snakes of the genus Philothamnus and the green Boomslang. The Green Mamba spends most of its life in dense coastal vegetation where it hunts for tree-living mammals as well as birds during the day. It occasionally ventures into suburban gardens and may seek shade in houses, especially if there are shrubs that grow close to an open window. Its venom is potently neurotoxic but may also cause swelling. Antivenom is effective but bites quite rare. This snake does not occur in any of the other provinces other than KwaZulu-Natal and the extreme northeastern part of the Eastern Cape, nor does it occur in Swaziland or the Kruger National Park. . . . . . #greenmamba #dendroaspisangusticeps #mamba #venomous  #snake #snakesofig #snakestagram #inyoka #snakesofinstagram #reptile #serpent #herpsZA #reptilesofinstagram #snakelove #snakelovers #snakephotography #animalsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #Canon #CanonRSA #shotoncanon #JohanMarais #herpetology #africansnafricansnakebiteinstitute  #reptilephotography #nature

A once in a lifetime sighting of arguably one of the rarest or least commonly encountered snakes around South Africa - although technically not from the land mass, only a handful of specimens are seen every year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Specimens like this may sometimes wash ashore from strong currents or heavy storm surges.

Bibron’s Stiletto Snake (Atractaspis bibronii) After the Mozambique Spitting Cobra and Puff Adder, the Stiletto Snake accounts for the majority of serious snakebites in South Africa. It spends most of its life underground but often emerges on hot humid nights and may be stepped on. With large rotating fangs it cannot be handled safely and also cannot be held behind the head – it merely twists it head sideways and will get a fang to penetrate. It is usually a blackish brown colour and is easily confused for a variety of harmless snakes. This snake averages 30 cm but can exceed 80 cm in length. Its venom is potently cytotoxic causing severe pain, swelling, blistering and necrosis. Blisters should not be cut for at least six days. Treatment is symptomatic as there is no antivenom available for the bite of this snake. . . . . #bibronsstilettosnake #atractaspisbibronii #venomoussnakes #venomous #snake #snakesofig #snakestagram  #snakesofinstagram #reptile #serpent #herpsZA #reptilesofinstagram #snakelove #snakelovers #snakephotography #animalsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #Canon #CanonRSA #shotoncanon #JohanMarais #herpetology #africansnafricansnakebiteinstitute  #reptilephotography #nature

Awesome shot of myself with the first ever Sundevall's Garter Snake (Elapsoidae Sundevallii) I'd ever seen. Well, one of two, since @robotfaced lifted a rock with two of these buggers sheltering underneath. Shortly after I had my turn at finding one with a smaller individual beneath a rock a few meters away. What an experience! Sundevall's Garter Snakes are uncommon snakes due to their fossorial habits and elusive nature. Some folks might confuse the name with American Garter Snakes however these are elapids carrying a neurotoxic venom which hasn't been studied very well in terms of effects on humans, but they are considered "dangerously venomous" Elapsoidae are rather docile and few bites have been recorded. 📷 @robotfaced . . . . #snake #reptile #animal #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #natureza #nature #wildlife #herping #winter #fieldherping #herpsza #biodiversity #animalsofinstagram #snakesofig #lifer #wild #herpetology #biology #danger #sundevallsgartersnake #gartersnake #adventure #fun #awesome #epic #wanderlust #africa #southafrica #kzn

Many-horned Adder (Bitis cornuta) A small adder that averages 30 – 40 cm (maximum 75 cm) with characteristic clusters of horns above each eye. This is a common snake in Namaqualand and extends into southern Namibia. Though largely active at night, it is fond of basking during the day. It favours rocky areas and gravel flats. It has the ability to sidewind as well as bury itself in loose sand. This little adder is often seen crossing roads in summer and many individuals are killed by passing vehicles. When confronted it will huff and puff and strike rapidly. The venom of this snake is cytotoxic and not considered deadly. Bites are extremely painful causing swelling and possibly necrosis around the fang punctures. Antivenom is not effective and is not required. . . . . #Manyhornedadder #bitiscornuta #snake #snakesofig #herpsza #reptilesofinstagram #snakestagram  #snakesofinstagram #reptile #serpent #snakelove #snakelovers #snakephotography #animalsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #Canon #CanonRSA #shotoncanon #JohanMarais #herpetology #africansnafricansnakebiteinstitute  #reptilephotography #nature
