Despite several attempts at estimating higher-level snake relationships and numerous assessments of generic- or species-level phylogenies, a large-scale species-level phylogeny solely focusing on snakes has not been completed.

      Atractaspidines are poorly studied, fossorial snakes that are found throughout Africa and western Asia, including the Middle East. We employed concatenated gene-tree analyses and divergence dating approaches to investigate evolutionary relationships and biogeographic patterns of atractaspidines with a multi-locus data set consisting of three mitochondrial (16S, cyt b, and ND4) and two nuclear. Many snake varieties live on the African savanna. Some are poisonous, and some are dangerous by way of constriction. African rock pythons (Python sebae) are the largest and most temperamental snake in snakes prefer moist, open areas near water sources. Though specimens average 15 feet, some may grow to almost 20 feet.

Xenocalamus mechowii, or the elongate quill-snouted snake, is a species of venomous rear-fanged snake in the subfamily Aparallactinae of the family Lamprophiidae. The species is endemic to Africa.

Sometimes listed as a subfamily of the boa family. The West African carpet viper is a small snake, with an average total length of approximately 20 inches ( feet). They are typically yellowish brown in color, with distinctive eye-like spots along the length of their bodies. These spots are designed to confuse potential predators.

They are now placed together, although confusion remains over the relationships and status of some genera within. Xenocalamus species mainly took amphisbaenians (at least during adult life), whereas Atractaspis, Amblyodipsas, and Macrelaps consumed a wider array of prey, especially snakes.

Welcome to Snakes of Central and Western Africa, a multi-access key for the identification of West and Central African snake genera. This key is designed to aid in snake identifications made using the book Snakes of Central and Western Africa by Jean-Philippe Chippaux and Kate Jackson, but can be used independently in order to identify Western and Central African snakes to the genus level.

Four chelonian, 13 snake, one amphisbaenid, 16 lizard and 15 frog species were recorded in the park, while an additional six snake, five lizard and two frog taxa have been recorded in close proximity and probably also occur in the park.

Numerous range extensions are recorded, and these are discussed in the light of our present knowledge of the. Abstract. The herpetofauna of southern Africa is currently receiving an increased amount of attention.

The Zoological Society of Southern Africa held a symposium on herpetology and ichthyology inthe proceedings of which have been published in Zoologica Africana, and no less than 17 papers dealt specifically with research carried out recently on southern African amphibians and reptiles.

8. Puff Adder. The puff adder (Bitis arietans) is a highly venomous species of viper found throughout Africa with the exception of the Sahara Desert region and the African snakes produce a cytotoxic venom and as per research, if left untreated, about milligrams of the puff adder venom is sufficient to kill adult human males within 25 hours post-bite.Broadley, D.G.
