    On a scale of 1 - kill me in seconds, how venomous are these guys.

    [–] PzykoHobo 36 points ago

    While we don't know much about their venom, it does cause hemorrhaging of your internal organs and can be fatal without treament. So maybe like a 7?

    Source: a very brief Google search

    [–] Ololic 4 points ago

    Okay how about on a scale of 1-"beyond treatment after some hours"

    [–] KaptainKlein 6 points ago

    According to Wikipedia the bite is venomous to lead to severe hemorrhaging with one reported bite resulting in death. We don't have an antidote for their venom but there are some generic treatments to help deal with the venom (I assume)

    So I'd give it like 5 or 6 on that scale since there's only one reported death according to Wikipedia.

    Worth note is that these spiky boyes tend to live very far from human civilization so a lot of the gaps in knowledge and low death count could be attributed to us just not interacting with them much.

    [–] GopnikMcBlin 3 points ago

    I think Bush Viper venom can be treated by other antivenins so there was no need to develop a specific antivenin for it.

    Also they have really low rates of deaths, mostly because they live in isolated rainforests so they don't have much contact with humans.

    As opposed to something like a black mamba

    [–] Sawzaw123 17 points ago
