It`s nice that somebody`s demise makes you remember me
. I almost had the same fate with the guy as my regular readers know so I can relate. I dodged the bullet but King Cobra venom is much tougher of course. The sheer amount of venom is hard to deal with and on top of that, it is very potent.
Ouch. Couldn't have been a nice way to go that. How long would that type of bite take to induce a heart attack GS?
Normally snake bites don`t induce heart attacks. I bet the guy had the heart attack due to fear of death, sick irony at play. It was very scary getting bitten and it can very well induce a heart attack if you have a heart condition. King Cobra neurotoxins will eventually stop your diaphragm muscle and you will die of asphyxiation. The time depends on the size of the person, amount of the venom etc. but it will take less than half an hour for sure. Antivenin must be administered immediately. Very though situation, you need to get so much antivenin (which is made from horse blood serum), the risk of anaphylactic shock increases significantly.
Gala, you are fucking mental, mate. I dont mind snakes, but i hate spiders. the ones that appear in my bathroom from time to time are scary enough, some of yours would give me a bloody heart attack i reckon!
But all in all, this is probably the most interesting off topic thread on RAWK. Keep it up mate
It's surprising, but this is the first time I've delved in this thread and I have to say that I'm amazed by the sheer effort and dedication Gala has for his pets.
I acknowledge that arachnids may not be everyone's cup of tea but I find them pretty much enthralling.
So keep up the good work. And I look forward to the update when the spiderlings hatch.
Some people have a hard time to understand this hobby but I really love my animals, hence the amount of time and money I spend on them. I mean look at the colors of Poecilotheria hanumavilasumica
Incredible! Unfortunately this is a critically endangered species and the one I have is one of a few thousand that are still alive. One day we won`t have any of these and it is a shame really.
As for the spiderlings, the momma spider should build the egg sack real soon. I am expecting egg laying within a week.
