Animal of the day – 12/18/2011 – The Boomslang

Boomslang

The animal of the day is the Boomslang. (Did you know: The shredded skin of the Boomslang is one of the ingredients of Polyjuice Potion! Good look finding the other ingredients though!

While the Boomslang is poisonous, it’s small fangs and timid nature make it a rare candidate for attack on humans. The worst thing about getting bitten by a this African tree snake is that the venom is very slow working, sometimes taking many hours. This causes those bitten to think they are ok, while the hematoxin in the vemon stops blood clotting,and slowly causes internal bleeding.
