Eastern Savanah Vine Snake
Daytime snake, long, very thin, lives in trees and bushes. Body colour is grey with darker markings, lips and chin white with black speckles, top of long sharp head usually green, occasionally reddish brown. This colouring makes it almost impossible to see in the bush, where it can remain motionless to avoid detection. When alarmed it can inflate throat, displaying dark "eye" marking on pale blue background. Can be found around birds so a danger to children raiding nests but is most reluctant to bite. Test for blood clotting.
Symptoms - Bleeding Syndrome can develop.
DO NOT GIVE ANTIVENOM
