The Boomslang, Dispholidus typus, is a mid- to rear-fanged arboreal colubrid widely distributed throughout much of the African continent. Envenoming by this species is rare although deaths have been recorded. Typical symptoms associated with envenoming include diffuse intravascular coagulation (DIC) caused by fibrinogen consumption and consequent incoagulable blood together with haemorrhage into tissues such as muscle and brain; together, these procoagulant and haemorrhagic effects of the venom… CONTINUE READING
