Buy Austrelaps superbus Snake Venom
The lowland copperhead or lowlands copperhead (Austrelaps superbus) is a venomous snake species in the family Elapidae. It is commonly referred to as the copperhead, but is not closely related to the American copperhead, Agkistrodon contortrix. If provoked, the lowland copperhead is a dangerous snake with neurotoxic venom, which can kill an adult human if correct first aid is not applied promptly
The lowland copperhead is generally 1-1.5 m (3–4½ feet) long. Their colour varies a great deal, from a coppery mid-brown to yellowish, reddish, grey or black. Hence, the copper head colouring that gave rise to the common name is not always present. Its venom has been measured at 0.5 mg/kg subcutaneous.
Moreover, the Venom of lowland copperhead contains postsynaptic neurotoxins. There have been a dozen reported bites from this species and one fatality.
