Hey Reader,

Thank you for subscribing to our email newsletter about Kenya's deadly snakes.

We are in the process of creating an eBook that will feature high key photographs of deadly snakes including those of juveniles and adults.

Every two weeks, we will email you with a featured deadly snake including some facts.


This weeks featured snake is the Thelotornis usambaricus also known as the Usambara vine snake. See our feature infographic below.


While vine snakes are deadly, it is unlikely for you to be envenomed. Their fangs are at the back of the mouth and they need to chew in to inject the venom. This is ample time for you to get it off you and get to safety. They are very timid snakes that rely of camouflage to blend in with the jungle.


The next sneak peak will be the Gaboon viper, Bitis gabonica. Is there anything you would like us to cover or you would like to see? Email us at projects@eastafricanreptiles.com, we will do our best to address your request.

Thank you for subscribing, until next time!

Karel and Kyle
