    Syeph,

    The jury have most definitely returned their verdict with regards to venom in D.punctulatus - a large specimen will have glands approximately an inch long, and the delivery system is the many sharp teeth, included enlarged ones towards the back of the mouth. As they do not have a direct mode of envenomation (i.e. the standard 'hypodermic needle' type fangs of elapids, vipers etc), or the ability to inject significant quantities of venom (maximum of about 1mg), they are not considered medically significant to humans. If you're a frog, watch out!

    Cheers,

    Awesome pics there, good to see some pics of stuff you dont see everyday.

    Here is another pic to keep the thread up, took advantage of ninja day to sneek in and catch a pic of one of my tree snakes pumping out some eggs, 2 look like slugs but the rest look pretty good :)

    Matt, is that a Punctulata or Calligastra? Do you have any more photos of that snake? The infused yellow is stunning ...
