This WAS my adder before I sold him off
This IS my only red belly I'm keeping at the moment. he's got a bit of attitude
Definitely best just to make sure you never get bitten by any elapid. Any species or size can give you anaphylaxis, and that can kill you much faster than the direct effects of the venom.Automated signature.
Here are my female and male RBB's, and some Barkly adders that were born in March. Baby adders do pack enough to put you in hospital, so please take everybodys advice and don't get complacent.Tis better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt. - Abe Lincoln.

I remember one episode of Adrian's Reptile World, where the host found a death adder that was only a day or so old. It rested on the palm of his hand and he explained that the snake was too small to be able to deliver a bite to his hand (that's an off the top of my head memory of the program, at least). By the sound of some of the things I have read in this thread, even handling such a tiny death adder would be inadvisable, or at least for someone new to elapids. Am I right with this?

I've probably got a venom allergy already and not even aware of it. I won't know either until I get an unlucky bite. Then you really need to hotfoot it. Lost a mate to it once, so it's always in the back of my mind.
chicks love black snakes
