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
