Gaboon viper on the loose, Mt Pleasant, SC



LINK

quote:

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC - It all started when the maintenance man at Harbor Point Apartments found a bizarre looking snake skin shed. Management then made a few calls and they were told it is the skin of a Gaboon Viper a very poisonous and very large snake native to Africa.

Taking a cautious approach management notified residents of the complex that has entrances off both McGrath Darby and Houston Northcutt Blvd. Residents were notified with a flyer posted on their doors and in common areas telling them that a Gaboon Viper may be lurking around the complex and to take proper precautions.

Farrah Reid who lives in the complex was first notified by her husband. She said it has forced her to think twice when walking her dogs.

“And I read it and I was like oh my god! I close bars and I get home like around 11 or 12-o’clock at night and I have to take them out.”

If it is a Gaboon Viper the snakes can grow up to 6ft long and are recognized by the very distinct rectangular patterns down it’s back. Management has the skin in the main office tacked up to spread it out. Residents are asked to call 843-819-9510 if the snake or any signs of it are spotted.

That's a scary looking snake. You'd probably never see it hiding in some leaves. The good thing is that gaboon vipers rarely bite people. Sometimes they can even be stepped on and not bite. I would still move out of that complex however.

And how do you know this? Are you a zoologist? Or did you just read the Wikipedia page and are acting like you know what you are talking about?

The Gaboon Viper is one of about 6 poisonous snakes you want absolutely no part of and its easily one of the more intimidating looking snakes with its 1 inch rangs .The others are the King Cobra, Fer De Lance, Bushmaster, Taipan, and Russells Viper.

I feel like the list of most poisonous snakes always changes to suit the context and location. According to one TV talking head, it's a sea snake. According to some crazy Aussie frick on youtube, it's a red-bellied black snake. According to TigerDroppings, it's something else.

I am at a loss when it comes to the "most poisonous" snakes, and I don't know where to turn.
