There is an SSAR publication written in the early 90's by Bill Altimari(sp?) that has LD50 charts for the species in question. Good luck and don't get bit. Whether or not you "shake it off", there is still the great potential for necrotic damage. This species has a rather ugly variety of hemmorhagic and caseinolytic factors.

:I have read a lot of conflicting information on the toxicity of the eyelash viper. Does anyone know of an accurate source of information on this subjet?
