“…Biochemical and pharmacological studies have also deepened our knowledge about rear-fanged snake venoms, and revealed that a number of species ( D. typus , Thelotornis capensis , Rhabdophis tigrinus , R. subminiatus , Balanophis ceylonensis , Philodryas olfersii , and Tachymenis peruviana ) are able to deliver lethal quantities of venoms and cause human fatalities [10], [12], [53], [100], [101], [102], [103], [104], [105], [106], [107]. Increasing awareness of life-threatening envenomings from rear-fanged snake bites should lead to an increased interest in research focused on these venoms, which in turn should contribute to prevent fatal human accidents, such as that unfortunately suffered by Karl Patterson Schmidt.…”

“…Experimental studies have shown that the Philodryas olfersii venom has hemorrhagic, proteolytic, fibrinogenolytic and fibrinolytic actions, but no anticoagulant action6. CORREIA et al 4 reported a case of Philodryas olfersii accident characterized by important local complications and anaphylactic reaction to the use of antibothropic serum, demonstrating that these accidents cannot be underestimated. Similarly, we observed one case of severe complications due to the bite of this snake, with the development of sepsis and AKI requiring dialysis.…”

“…Espécie agressiva que tenta fugir ao toque, mas ao ser manuseada geralmente tenta morder, realiza descarga de substâncias de mau odor pela cloaca e debate-se vigorosamente. Acidentes provocados por P. olfersii são constantemente relatados na literatura (Fowler & Salomão, 1994;Ribeiro et al, 1999;Rocha & Furtado, 2007;Correia et al, 2010).…”
