First you say this. Quoting you in red...

Now if you look at a boomslang (which I think you brought up in another post comparing the hog to the boomslang) which is truely a rear fanged venomous, the delivery system is the same as with all front fanged vipers. Through hollow fangs...Why do you think a boomslang bite is considered so serious? Not only because of the level of toxicity, but because of the delivery system.

Then you say this again, in red...

I know no colubrid has hollow fangs. The debate is all in the delivery system.

A bit inconsistent, no?

So which is it Will? Boomslangs are a rear fanged colubrid, correct? Yes, that is correct. They are indeed a rear fanged venomous colubrid.

You so boldly stated that boomslangs are a "true rear fanged venomous" and have hollow fangs and then go on to say that you know that no colubrids have hollow fangs. So, are you now going to reclassify boomslangs and take them out of the colubrid family because you just feel like it? Keep in mind that boomslangs are not the only medically significant rear fanged colubrid. There are at least a couple of dozen species.
