Mangrove snakes (Boiga dendrophilia) are large snakes that have a triangular appearance and a large lanceolate head. They are rear fanged, mildly venomous (to humans) colubrid snakes. I suppose it could also be one of the sea-kraits...I'm not sure if any of the true kraits are native to the P.I., I don't think so. Some of the true kraits are also triangular in body shape. The only true venomous snakes that I know of occurring in the Phillipines are Calliophis calligaster, Maticora intestinalis, Naja naja phillipinensis, Ophiophagus hannah, Trimeresurus flavomaculatus, and Trimeresurus wagleri.

I've never heard of that myth, but then there are probably a bunch of them I've never heard.


:I agree- as far as i know, hinged,fixed and grooved fangs would be the only method of venom delivery attributable to a serpent, and i suggested the myth idea to my friend. I'm more curious about the body structure since the trangular shape was apparently quite pronounced. (maybe they're just fat like a gaboon- making the bottom wider at times?) Thanks for the help
