Thanks for the info. I appreciate it. I was also wondering if you have ever heard of anybody getting a fasciectomy? Where the doctocs cut open the victims arm? I heard that this was a very bad treatment of snake bite

:Hello,
:Depending which virdis subpecies you get bit by the the venom varies.
:some are more myo toxic than others and some have neurotoxic
:components to their venom.
:helleri has a very potent venom that makes crofab not to effective at all.
:oreganus has a myotoxic venom lacking most of the neurotoxins
:found in its southern cousin.

:I have been bit by a mount lemmon black and a prarieand a helleri.
:the black lacked all n-toxins the virdis virdis had both components.
:the typical virdis would hAVE TO UNLOAD ALL OF ITS VENOM TO KILL YOU.
: BUT BE CAREFULL THER MYOTOXIC PROPERTIES ARE BAD ON TISSUE.
: ie>> OREGANUS IS MYOTOXIC.
:HAVE FUN.
:BILL
