Aren't you just so stupid?So to point something out is to 'argue blindly'?

Your loss of appetite must be coming from the neurotic disorder you are suffering from.

I thought the Boomslang was the most venomous?

Edit: I've searched it

Boomslang is venomous and kills a lot of people in Africa. The Gaboon viper is a terror too. It's an ambush predator that can lie for up to 9 hours under dead leaves and plantation waiting for prey to come by. It is sluggish and avoids humans though but would often strike in self defence when humans step close to it. It has the longest fangs of any snake in the world.

The inland taipan of Australia has the deadliest venom but it's a very shy snake that avoids biting and stays far away from human dwellings unlike its aggressive cousin, the coastal taipan.

The venom will literally "freeze" (coagulate) your blood in 5 seconds. Researchers are working on the venom to be able to use it in stopping massive bleeding in accident victims.

You can under rate a king Cobra but don't put the Mamba and "just" in the same sentence grin
The Mamba is aggressive but he certainly doesn't bluff.
The Mamba's venom kills in minutes bro,and they strike so many times they ensure that time is reduced even further grin

Mambas no dey bluff ooo

I've seen two different videos of king cobras in India giving a "dry" bite (venom-less threat) which it does by throwing its body forward and swinging its head at the larger threat (humans) but never opening its mouth but will bite when the threat doesn't move away.

Black mambas no get time. Na bite straight if u nor clear road for am.

The venom is a protein ( strange right?) There are proteins that are heat labile( susceptible to heat) while some proteins are not heat labile.

But in the long run, all proteins are denatured by high heat
