:I now have Pssamophis on the list of genera not to get nailed by. Yesterday we milked one of the P. mossambica (the snake that is usually referred to as P. sibilans even though that snake is a dinky little one in reality) and got huge venom yields. So, today we chucked a mouse into the cage with the P. sudanensis. The P. sudanensis killed the mouse in less than two minutes!!! It bit it, chewed three times and sat back to wait while just holding the mouse in its mouth as if it knew things would be over soon .... and they were!! Very very scary. Less than two minutes would be about average for a cobra of equivalent head size having an average feeding bite. I now have Pssamophis very very much on the list of snakes not to get by!!! Death was by neurotoxicity!

:Fun stuff!
