Very nice!

My friend also got bitten on the finger by this "Sypikslang" here in Northen KZN. He was in a lot of pain and luckily didn't lose his finger...just left with a lekke scar.

I'm 14 and I was bitten by a stileto two years ago, it was my first and worst bite EVER.
I was REALLY inexperienced at the time as I thought it was a herald... :smt017

My dad shows me the pics of me in the hospital every time I go out herping!
