This page is indexed on our home page under Aspect: 40. Venomous Snakes- Species and the Section: 1. Overview & General Care Sheets
Venomous Snakes by Species: an Overview
Venomous snakes of the world, are dealt with in
this section, by logical grouping of the Genus, Family or common name and by
species within each genus, where we provide a collection of links to relative
information on each species. This includes links to pictures, captive care,
natural habitat, Envenomations (Bite care and responses), and any important
websites that deal with the genus in detail.
More information is also available on this website under the sections where we provide links by country, from Australia's Venomous Snakes to the Venomous Snakes of Texas. We all have a more general section on venomous snakes where the general husbandry, handling procedures, Venom & Antivenom Products etc. are dealt with.
When dealing with the snakes from a specific area, in the BY Country section we link back to these pages where appropriate.
This is an ongoing project where we will be adding Photographs and other information as it becomes available. The required research on each species, is very time consuming, but in the interim, we hope you find this layout useful.
We have started with the Southern African Snakes and have done some work on Rattlesnakes and hope these pages will give an indication of what we would like to achieve. The one thing we noted is that the treatment of African snakes and rattlesnakes, is the odd species that have a different venom to the majority of the genus.
Anyway we do not really have the expertise to complete this exercise on our own so we really do need help. If you feel that the presentation method and content are going to be of assistance and would like to contribute the required links please feel free to do so, especially within your area of interest. If you note any aspect that needs correction, or if you have any comments please feel free to submit same.
All contributions that are used will be firstly very much appreciated and secondly full acknowledgement will be given.
