The Boomslang is # 9 on our most deadly list. The Boomslang snake is a rather big , highly poisonous tree-dweller snake found throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Boomslangs are greenish to brown or even black in color. These color changes are the greatest of any other snake in their area or habitat. The older females are mostly brown in color, with the males a light green color often with black or blue highlights outlining their scales.
Boomslang is dangerous because it can blend in with the trees and
shrubbery. It is hard to see in the thick forested cover of the
desert. As a result, the
Boomslang is well blended, and attacks without giving any warning or
signal. The Boomslang injects a toxic poison to unwelcome visitors
through big, deeply grooved, folded fangs located in the back
of its mouth. This snakes' bite can be very bad if left ignored. The
female lays as many as 8 to 25 eggs, which hatch in the spring.
They grow to be about 3.5 to 5.5 feet long. The biggest one ever recorded was 6.0
feet long! he
