Puff adders are my favorite venomous snake not because of how wicked the vonom is but because the puff adder will give plenty of warning before striking and compared to other snakes they're pretty chill

And you wonder why most mammals hate snakes.

so what happens after, does the snake expand its jaws and swallow the Rhino whole?

Watching this gave me an idea. To make a video of the news of the day reading them from the newspaper.

What a wondrous venom, yet lose to a mongoose

At least a mamba or cobra or krait's venom will bring down the CNS of a bite victim, an efficient and (compared to necrosis) mercifully fast death.. pit vipers like puff adders and rattlesnakes are just being fuckin' dicks.

the rhino should know better,
you always bring a anti-venom+ whenever you enter the wilderness just incase you run into some pkers

A few years ago we made a house fire where the owner had a ton of snakes in glass fish tanks in the rooms. One tank had a puff adder in it, in owner didn't want to talk about it and we checked with all the local hospitals and found there was no anti-venom to be had for this snake. He also had a 3' alligator in the tub and a fox and other critters in the house. State game wardens had a long talk with him, long after we left. Don't know what became of it

Vipers have huge fangs, especially the Puff Adder and Gabon Viper, which can penetrate the rhino skin. Elapids with smaller fangs may bite through soft tissue, like the trunk of an elephant, which is the case of an Indian king cobra against an elephant.

These things appear in the area where i live, and they are beyond scary. They are of course part of nature, but it is one part i would gladly not meet up with. I saw one slithering across the main road into the village where i live, and this thing was massive, as thick as my calf. And their strike speed is a incredibly fast.
A friend of ours who has a dairy farm lost a fair few head of cattle to bites from these babies.
