Africa is home to many amazing venomous snakes. This continent has many ecosystems. We will explore deserts, savannas and rainforests of sub-Saharan Africa. This first episode is about venomous snakes living in deserts. Kalahari desert and other dry regions of southwester Africa are home to deadly Cape cobras (Naja nivea). You will see several color morphs, including a stunning yellow cobra. This snake will fight with meerkats! This episode also shows 3 species of dwarf adders, the Horned adder (Bitis caudalis), the Many-horned adder (Bitis cornuta) and the Namaqua dwarf adder (Bitis schneideri). Another small viper from arid regions of Africa is the Northeast African carpet viper (Echis pyramidum). East Africa is also inhabited by the colorful Red spitting cobra (Naja pallida). You will see this cobra spit venom! This episode includes a scene of venom extraction and interview about the snakebite topic. Wait for the end and don’t miss various color morphs of Puff adder (Bitis arietans) and desert Boomslangs (Dispholidus typus).

I’m assuming that tree the Boomslang was on is an Acacia. I wonder how they avoid getting stuck with the thorns

Outstanding documentary.

No overdramatization like in many other channels. Just the beauty of nature and a lot of educational content.
Keep up with your great job.
