: I read in a book that the mussarana is the only snake that can kill the fer-de-lance because it is immune to the fer-de-lance's venom. It said that the mussarana has strong muscles and weak venom, and I have looked everywhere but I can't find anything about it. Can anyone help me??

Colleen,

You're not alone! I have a passion for ophiophagous snakes, and would love to have a Clelia spp., but I can't even find any info. on the web about them!!

They are rear-fanged colubrids but are totally harmless to humans. My guess - but I don't know - is that a Cribo could take a Bothrops spp. as well. Like our indigos, they are largely immune to the venom of crotalids, and Cribos can be 8 feet.

If you find some info let me know, and I'll do theh same!!

-John
