Bob Amick's coverage of the snakebite issue was excellent. I have only
one minor thing to add that concerns only those of us who go into the
Mojave Desert of California.
The "Mojave Green" rattlesnake does have both haemotoxin and neurotoxin.
Fortunately, the wee beastie is normally not aggressive and will retreat,
given the slightest chance. Bites by the Mojave Green rattlesnake can be
very nasty indeed...
