I see this quiz has been standing still for quite some time. let's try to get it up and running (or sailing :tongue: ) again.

Q: What type of venom does the Boomslang have?

Thanks WFG :thumbs_up:

The boomslang's venom is haemotoxic, which results in decreased clotting processes of the blood and so internal and external bleeding, which may result in death of the victim.

b) All reptiles have a three-chambered heart. False - crocodiles have a 4 chambered heart
c) Dinosaurs are classified as having belonged to the suborder of reptiles, Lacertilia, or lizards. False - I think!
d) All reptiles leave their young to fend for themselves immediately after birth. False - crocs and pythons have some parental behaviours

:hmz: My SO told me about photographs that she saw some time ago that depicted two Cape Cobras that had lived together in the same hole for years. Later, a third snake joined them. So, I'll say The Cape Cobra.
