Handling a Mangrove Snake with Venom Defender Gloves

A regular contributor of superb features is Andy Laister. He recently send us these photos of himself handling a Mangrove snake.

This is a Mangrove snake (Boiga dendrophila gemmicincta) from Central Sulawesi.  

In that part of Sulawesi they lose the yellow bands and become all black as they grow into adults.  

This species although venomous is back fanged and not considered to be dangerous to humans but they can still give a very hard bite which they will do given any opportunity.  

So its great to use the gloves rather than being covered in bites.
