The angle of the light is excellent, and the subject couldn't be cuter. Great shot :)

I love it!
Is it venomous?

:iconjeremyringma:
JeremyRingma Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2010
only if it bites you. they are collubrid so they are rear fanged and the venom is pretty weak. You still don't want to be bitten but they don't demand the same level of respect as some of the elapid species we get.

ah alright! :) thanks for the info :)
Yeah I know about that rear-fanged ones aren't nearly as dangerous as other venomous snakes. Do all rear-fanged ones have the same 'danger-level' of venom, or does it vary?

the Midget has it covered. Australian collubrids all have pretty weak venom, this guy is the most potent possibly causing a localised reaction, i don't think anyone has ever died. Compared to our elapid species which will kill you dead they are pretty non threatening. However alot of people who do get bitten have miss id'd dangerous species with a non threatening one. So its best to treat everything like you don't want it to bite

Generally, it varies. Hognose snakes, which are found in the U.S. are rear fanged with a very mild venom, but they're not considered dangerous to humans.

However, some rear-fanged snakes have very potent venom, such as the Boomslang, Mangrove Snake, African Twig Snake, Brown Tree Snake, and the False Water Cobra.

The Sonoran lyresnake (trimorphodon lambda) is also rear fanged and mildly venomous but not considered dangerous to humans except for anaphylactic reactions.

Yeah, there are alot of snakes like that, but I don't know all of them specifically. Thanks for the info ;)

You're welcome. It's the only one around here that I've found so far as we mostly have either non-venomous or rattlers - some 15 species with a coral snake every once in a while.

yeh they are pretty cool snakes. Not sure what the rules are in the US, but they are a collubrid so you might need a venomous species license.

been playing around with the second flash. I've been firing it bare rather than through a diffuser. Don't know wether the effect is better just different.

Yes the separation it has given the tounge is heaps better than any of my other tounge flick shots, will definately use the same configuration again.
