(Dispholidus typus)
A highly potent venomous snake. Translated [from Afrikaans] it’s name means Tree Snake. Native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is also a very timid snake and therefore there are not vary many incidents of bites to humans. But should it bite a human the bite is potentially lethal

    Die groen slang is nie giftig nie … maar as hy eers RYP is …!!
    Ek haaaaat slange, maar dis ’n goeie foto!

  • Baie dankie!
    So fer as ek kan uitfind die slang se gif kan doodlik vees. Maar die slang is ook baie [timid] en daarom pik hy maar min mense.

    Sorry, my afrikaans is not that great [well in written text anyway] … I can understand it for the most part, but writing it is a whole other discipline.

    I was just joking, but maby the joke can be the same in English:
    I said a GREEN snake is not poisonous, but once it’s RIPE you beter watch out!
    Yes, you’re more than right they are absolutly dangerous!
