Hi!

Some useful information: Guidelines for the Prevention and Clinical Management of Snakebite in Africa.

The document is just over 4mb, so was unable to attach the file, but have included the link below.

A database and image library has been created by WHO to enable users to easily identify the most important venomous snakes in their country, territory or area; see the distributions of each species; and find information about antivenom products for treating envenoming caused by their bites.

The database is accessible from the Database search option in the left hand site navigation menu.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Stuart, much appreciated. I often find puff adders in my garden.

If you don't own an FJ Cruiser you probably won't understand...
Until we meet on a dusty road someday, somewhere, keep on Cruisering....
