Not a Pufadder.

A short visit to the old dog cemetary in Skukuza leaves one with no doubt.

Could it be the Leopard Tortoise, as they are known to carry a variety of diseases that can infect, and kill, animals and humans?

I try to answer your questions but don't always have good enough questions for this RV Qiuz and thats is why I am more active on the OQ

Here is a question:

What time do you have to get to hospital when a boomslang got hold of you?

Who says your questions are not good, LL? :naughty: Really nice one this. :clap:

So, the answer is you have to get to hospital in as little time as possible. :twisted:

The venom is extremely dangerous, causing internal and external bleeding. However, it takes a long time to work, so it may take anywhere between 24-48 hours to produce serious symptoms. However, one must remember that it also depends on the health of the victim and if there are any predisposing conditions, such as haemophilia, in which case serious bleeding could begin much sooner. Also, it depends on how much venom is injected and if it is injected directly into a vein or artery. Therefore, the sooner one gets to hospital, the less serious the potential for death.

:thumbs_up:

Which lizard defends itself by grabbing its tail in its mouth and rolling into a ball? It is found mainly in South Africa and lives in communities that sometimes number in the hundreds.
