    Default Mangrove Snakes?

    So I just found out that there are going to be two types of "mildly" venomous rear fanged snakes at my work on Friday when I start. And was just curious, how venomous are Mangrove Snakes, what are the side affects/damage from a bite?

    Also, if someone could answer the same questions about Green Vine Snakes itd me much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Mangroves will probably produce alot of local swelling,The venom is very toxic, but the delivery system sucks, so to say. (Rear-Fanged) the best thing to do is just avoid the bite alltogather, I have seen minimal swelling all the way up to almost severe.

    Green vines are also rear fanged venomous, but considered very mild.

    And what would the treatment be for a bite like that, and how long would the swelling last? Any long term damage from the bite?

    Depends on the severity of the envenomation, LLL should have protocols for an envenomation, you might want to ask them first and foremost what their protocol is. There can be long term affects, yes. as skin cells can die from a mangrove bite, and every envenomation can be different, swelling can last days to weeks.

    Yeah, i'm sure they will have some sort of precautions and routine for it. I guess I'll find out on Friday. Hopefully not the hard way!
