deadliest snake

Sorry to say this, but Kelly Slater and other surfers saying that sharks should be culled in big numbers are in the wrong. In the last 10 years 80 people have been killed by sharks. That’s not a huge imbalance or a big threat. There are areas where a handful attacks by sharks on humans happen every year and people are warned to not enter these waters. (The area which Kelly Slater talks about apparently saw 20 attacks since 2011, 8 of them deadly.) Yet that is still such a small number, compared to real common threats. More people get killed by dogs every single year. (Apparently 25.000 a year.) No one asks that all dogs should be killed. And are surfers forgetting that the ocean is the natural environment of sharks and NOT of humans?

You are entering the natural habitat of a dangerous (because of its anatomy, not because it loves to attack humans) animal, that can kill you if it mistakenly attacks you, and then you call for it to be extinct, so you can have some fun. That’s pretty ironic…

Ja’far’s Assimilation Form

This isn’t really a long theory post, but just something that I wanted to point out. As people like @mari-m-rose​ pointed out, Ja’far is shown to become a monster fully for a few seconds before reverting back to human form in Snb 170.

I want to point out the shape of his “assimilated” form. Unlike Drakon’s, it doesn’t really look like a lizard of any sort. Especially from the perspective, we can tell its a HUGE monster form. He towers over Shaka and almost reaches the ceiling. 

Also note the weird “hood” shape of his form. What sort of animal could this be?

Why, what else than the very thing Ja’far is based off of? :3c

Our baby’s monster form is not only based off of a snake, but rather a king cobra or any other hooded snake. What a strong boy, I’m so proud of him <3 You can also see in the panel below the shadow looks like a long figure that seems to be curling/twisting around to look at Shaka:

Also the screentones and effects when Ja’far attacks Shaka looks like the way snakes attack– in one quick, deft and powerful strike.

His eyes are also hooded like a snake’s:

Aaaaah I absolutely love that Ja’far’s assimilated form is a hooded snake though, that narrows him down to types of snakes like the king cobra or the black mamba– both of whom are venomous snakes (and two of the deadliest snakes on the planet). I wonder if this means that Ja’far has some sort of feature relating to poison too? 

In the end, it’s only fitting for the High King of the Seven Seas to have the King of Snakes guarding him from danger~

Lamiatale type considerations

I kind of considered making all the Paps a type of boa or python, the bigger snakes because they’re all pretty tall. But I still want Uf and Sf to be venomous and those aren’t venomous. A reticulated python would’ve been perfect for Edge because I’ve seen how big and aggressive those are.

Edit: I got some suggestions from biryu13 that I’m adding and I completely forgot to add King Cobra to Edge’s because I was tired. And look I added formatting! The post looks so much better now. I also went back and found the username of who suggested the python for Classic and garter/garden snake for Blueberry.


Classic: I got a suggestion for Python from imageswhynot. biryu13 mentioned an indigo snake! I think this one might be just what I was looking for for either Classic or Blueberry

Papaya: a corn snake for its colors or I’ve also considered a tree python. 


Blueberry: I haven’t thought of much for him. I got a suggestion for a garter/garden snake from imageswhynot and I’m considering the indigo snake for him as well.

Stretch: I’ve also considered corn snake for him but maybe the tree python would be perfect since I did say he likes to chill in the trees. 


Red: a death adder or some type of rattlesnake. I’ve also considered a gaboon viper because they are #thicc.

Edge: a diamond back rattlesnake for the diamond shapes and I just like the idea of Edge with the rattling tail. Or a king cobra because they’re so regal, their attitude, and the shape of their head reminds me of how his shoulder armor is drawn.


Blackberry: I’m actually pretty dead set on him being a black mamba. Not because of the name but because they’re so fast and mambas are one of the deadliest snakes in the world. I also got a suggestion from biryu13 for him to be a taipan.

Rus: a copperhead because of the color. I was thinking about the snake types the other day and this one just suddenly popped into my head. Probably because copperheads are native to where I live.

Hello there I'd like to request a patronus analysis for my parents if that's possible? My Dad is a Gryffindor with a Black Mamba patronus and my Mom is a Ravenclaw with a Great Grey Owl for a patronus. I hope it's okay that I am requesting both in one ask, sorry if it's not. Thank you :)

Hey! We actually already did a Ravenclaw with a Great Grey Owl patronus. You can find it here!

Black mambas are actually brown in color. They get their name from the blue-black of the inside of their mouths, which they display when threatened. They have been blamed for numerous human deaths, and African myths exaggerate their capabilities to legendary proportions. The black mamba is widely considered the world’s deadliest snake. Black mambas are fast, nervous, lethally venomous, and when threatened, highly aggressive. It’s an animal that hates conflict and would rather have everyone to leave it alone.The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. 

People who have a black mamba as a Patronus are gentle with their friends. They like to challenge themselves mentally and are cunning patient people who hold grudges for a long time. Though they are quiet and shy, they will fight with everything they got for their loved ones and/or their safety. These people rather not work, staying in the background but they can still get things done. Planning, calculating and observing to get the best possible outcome. They work by the rule, keep your friends close but your enemies closer. It’s a Patronus that shows itself to people with strong character.

They Call Them Trinity - Chapter 4

Hello dearest! This week the chapter is slightly shorter than usual, but I hope you’ll still feel satisfied. I have been advised to put a trigger warning for violence and torture, so here it is - I guess that’s fair.

Hugs and pats to hartfic and dabblingdabbler for the betaproofreading!

This is a SFW, NSFF (I guess, I can never tell ‘cause I am a stonecold bitch with two inches of fur on my stomach) and I lied for 3,218 words.

“Don’t move. You’re surrounded.”

More steps approach, Grace counts at least 7 people, but they could be more. There’s a thud, and the night somehow becomes darker. As she falls on the ground, Grace wonders if this sleep will be dreamless at last.

- - -

She is awaken by a particularly rough jolt.

“Hey.” She hears.

Her head is pounding and her hands are tied behind her back. She is sitting on a hard, moving surface. She blinks repeatedly, until her eyes finally focus on a worried face framed by blonde, short hair.

“Han.” Grace can taste the blood in her own mouth as she calls her name.

“Hey, it’s okay, it’s all good.” Hannah is sitting in front of her, and for some reason she thinks she needs to reassure her. Grace smiles weakly, her head dropping forward, still heavy after the hit. “Grace! Stay with me, babe.”

“Babe?” She scoffs.

“Mh, sorry” Hannah giggles, “Glad you’re okay.”

Australia’s deadliest snake…..the eastern brown snake.
Based on venom toxicity alone the inland taipan is the deadliest, but based on other features such as aggressiveness, venom toxicity, distribution and number of human fatalities the eastern brown snake has killed more people in Australia than all other species of snake put together.
