it has been a long time since I've been able to visit my favourite forum (due to lack of internet ) so I wanna use this opportunity to ask this question: I had a lot of challenges and setbacks this year (incl. becoming a ronin, breaking my collar bone in a hit-and-run car accident and losing my most-used knives in an armed robbery in nicaragua) but also some happy moments: since January I've been living on my own on a farm ways up in the hills (peaceful but no electricity) together with a gorgeous girl with big floppy ears who was the size of a guinea pig when I first met her -- she needs more training but shows great promise as a hunting dog <3 "" hanging out with the locals" " got a new meaning when a sloth decided to move into the verandah for a day but not all wildlife was that welcome (which is the purpose of this thread): I've had a lot of close encounters with venomous snakes incl. stepping twice almost on a fer-de-lance in the jungle (the smaller one about 2m long...) and another guy killing two 5ft females close to the house -- the second one ready to give birth to 18babies --... both made great stew one question did not manage to get answered despite asking the locals and a short internet research: WHAT is the difference between a fer-de-lance and a bushmaster (== as they would require different antivenom in case of a bite...)?! anyone able to enlighten me?!
