Good Day,

I saw this on Facebook and with my limited knowledge of Puff Adders I know that normally they are very docile, but can strike from a lying position in a 1/4 of a second.
Can this be true?
Was the fangs pulled and if it was do a snake not grow new fangs?
Was the Venom Glands removed?

My brain tells me this is bullshit.

Thanx Everybody,

I am surprised that no snake expert left a reply of what might have been the case with these snakes.
Things like these might give a wrong message to laymen like me. To me it looks like these snakes are "harmless", which I know they are not. It might encourage people tp pickup highly venomous puff adders.

Just Saying.

Regards

Kobus
