Guidelines for the Prevention and Clinical Management of Snakebite in Africa




Despite urbanization and destruction of their habitat, venomous snakes remain plentiful in most parts of Africa. Throughout the continent, snakes are feared and misunderstood even though most are harmless. Venomous snakes bite humans only when they feel threatened, are trodden on or picked up inadvertently. Snakes are creatures that inspire awe, reverence and even worship in some areas, and they are exhibited as performing animals by traditional snake charmers.
