    Another one of my call outs entailed the capture of a Night Adder, which is a Mildly Venomous, Rear Fanged Species.
    On arrival, the snake was busy eating a Raucous Toad. I took pics, captured the snake and then released it in a swampy area about 5km from point of capture.

    I imagine with that toad in its belly it slowed it up some!

    I forgot to add, a bite from one of these is very painfull with large amounts of swelling and in a few cases, necrosis.
    Theer is no antivenom for a bite of this species however.
