I hit this forum on accident and decided to read this. I agree it does not make sense.

I would send a message to Zoltan Takacs, as he would be the leading authority on who snakes are immune to their venoms. Having listened to his lectures and spent a little time with Zoltan, my understanding is the snakes do not have a "resistance" which would be variable dependant on external factors (including presence of their own venom glands), but rather it is a true immunity like the above poster mentioned with things like the sugar molecule prohibiting binding, as they already stated.
