Buy Atheris Chlorechis Venom Online

For sale is Atheris Chlorechis venom (Bush Viper) snake venom, which can be purchased online. While Atheris bites were once thought to be only mildly venomous, it has since been proven that Atheris bites are in fact extremely dangerous. The antivenin Echis polyvalent has been reported to be effective in treating bites from other Atheris species, but there is currently no antivenin manufactured specifically for the species in question.
As a whole, the Usambara Eyelash Viper is a striking specimen, and I’ve heard of a few reptile keepers who have successfully kept them in captivity for a number of years without experiencing any problems.

Because they are an African species, I would suggest that they be cycled in a similar manner to other Atheris species by providing them with a period of cooler night time drops that are not colder than 15 degrees Celsius. Conclusion: If you enjoy arboreal vipers, the Usamabara Eyelash Viper should be at the top of your to-buy list.

In the 1950s, two Taiwanese researchers, CY Lee and CC Chang, made the decision to investigate the venom of the banded krait. After being bitten by the snake, which is native to Taiwan, the scientists discovered that they were paralysed and had shallow breathing, indicating that the snake’s venom must interfere in an interesting way with the nervous system’s control of muscles.

Nerves cause muscles to contract by releasing the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is produced in the brain. At first, Lee and Chang hypothesised that the snake venom was tearing acetylcholine apart, but they discovered that this was not the case. Instead, they discovered that the banded krait venom prevented neurons from responding to acetylcholine and from releasing their own acetylcholine in the first place. These two changes were caused by two different proteins found in the venom of the banded krait, which Lee and Chang dubbed -bungarotoxin and -bungarotoxin, respectively, in the venom.

Atheris is a genus of venomous vipers commonly referred to as bush vipers.

As a result of their confinement to rain forests, they are only found in tropical subsaharan Africa (excluding southern Africa), and many species have isolated and fragmented distributions as a result of this.

In a classic example of convergent evolution, they exhibit striking resemblances to the arboreal pit vipers found in Asia and South America.

Currently, sixteen species have been identified.
