    Was it one of your curl snakes, or some other small 'non dangerous' elapid?

    Could be anything mildly venomous as it looks like an allergic reaction more than just effects of the venom.

    Probably something you have been bitten by before with little or no reaction last time.

    Marsh Snake, Whip Snake, Curl snake?????

    By the way where did it bite you......on your hand?

    I have heard of that sort of reaction in some people who have been bitten by green tree snakes.

    Its pretty obvious... one of the notorious green tree snake cross red bellies. The ferocious tree dwelling superfast venomous snake... you know they are out in force at the moment...

    Huh that's interesting. And you've been bit before with no reaction?

    Tramp stamps were around for chicks in 1999... I know cause the girl I was with for 2000 new years eve had one..... That means you would have got that tattoo before you were 15 if it was before the tramp stamp era ;)

    yer with these the venom is difficult to convey into a bite on a human, thus is only given in small doses. The venom appears to be weakly neurotoxic and possibly cytotoxic with localized effects, but these effects are trivial for adult humans, and serious medical consequences have been limited to children due to their low mass.[1] This snake is still not considered dangerous to an adult human.[3] The venom seems to be primarily used to subdue lizards, which are more easily positioned in the rear of the mouth for venom delivery.[1]
