    beautifulsnakes: Mangrove Snake (Boiga dendrophila), SE Asia

    * Many rear-fanged venomous snakes have venom intended for cold blooded prey, and have what would be considered mild venom (as far as it affects humans). This species, however, has a fairly potent venom, forward pointing rear fangs, and is known to be rather aggressive in its own defense. This is not a snake to be trifled with. - Paxon
