Hi

Cape Cobra venom is neurotoxic causes cardiac/respiratory arrest

Puff Adder venom is cytotoxic and causes ecessive swelling, severe pain and tissue necrosis.

BE AWARE snakes have their place

And a Vinesnake & a Boomslang are Hemotoxic and causes Hypovolemic shock

The venom of the Berg Adder and the Mozambique Spitting Cobra is both Neurotixic and Cytotoxic. So be very careful with both of them.
