Do any of you guys have these snakes?? or worked with them/.. How venemous are they?? A couple of dumb "friends" of mine took al couple in their home.. She is a hart patient and he is most of the time of to work. so she has to handle the snakes..
I said they should get rid of them but what do you guys think.. can't find much on their venoum.

Hi mate

Their venom is pretty standard Boiga, ie. chockers full of neurotoxic 3FTx (three-finger toxins). These are the signature molecule of elapid venoms. However the danger isn't normally that high (but with a heart patient who knows). In anycase, if she uses hooks she should be right.

If you want to read up on their venom, download one of our articles
