It grows to over a meter in length and typically dwells
near rivers and pools, where it hunts for frogs. This rear-fanged species
was previously thought to be harmless, but following a fatality due to its
venomous bite, the toxicity of its poison was investigated and as a result
it was re-classified as dangerous. See also
