Buy Tropidechis carinatus Venom
The rough-scaled snake (Tropidechis carinatus) is a highly venomous Australian elapid. The animal’s name comes from its scales that are raised above the surrounding scales and have rough texture. We call the scales “keels”.
The rough-scaled snake is a highly venomous snake. Its venom is a fast acting powerful neurotoxin that is both presynaptic and post-synaptic. It has potent post-synaptic neurotoxins as well as potent pre-synaptic neurotoxins.
Moreover, it also has potent coagulants as well as myotoxins. In addition, it will readily bite and is known for its foul disposition and defensive nature. Several fatalities have occurred due to this species and it will strike rapidly in defense.
The snake is active both day and night. It can climb trees in pursuit of prey. The rough-scaled snake is highly venomous and will readily bite if attacked or handled.
The snake is brown to olive with narrow, irregular cross-bands or blotches of darker brown. The belly surfaces are greenish-grey or olive-cream, often with darker blotches. The mid-body scales have a raised keel or carinated appearance. The coloration and scale structure has led to some confusion with the non venomous keelback snake. It grows to around 70 cm in length.
