This thread started when you empirically stated that Dendrelaphis and Stegonotus were not rear fanged. It then went into a definition of what constitutes rear fanged and evolved into a discussion of whether they contain toxins. They most certainly do and Stegonotus is further a rear fang by any definitions.

As for the venomous standard, that was more along the lines of 'will it cause significant envenomation' rather than 'does it technically have venom'. There is an obvious difference between the two.

Thus, the thrust of my posts has been that you made statements of fact that were incorrect. This is not an easy area and is not made any easier through boiler-plated answers.
