Jonny,
I only address what is important to the conversation Jonny. Plus there is a limit on how much we can type per post.

The point being, this conversation was never about the potency of their venom. Obviously it is enough to swell a hand but not enough to land you in the ER.

Jonny,
As far as keeping quiet about the facts goes, that will do us more harm than good. Way more harm than a puffy hand can do.

Lance,
Good for you for diving into this subject and putting things together for yourself. That is what you are supposed to do. I am sure once you have been presented with more facts, you will know for sure they are venomous and not just "toxic". LOL.

One thing that puts me off is the word hemotoxic. Again, it is a broad bush stroke and does not point to anything specific. It certainly may have some hemotoxic properties. but what are the specifics? That is where Dr. BGF came in and got much more specific. So, which do I go with? Someone who is making a good educated guess, or someone who actually did the study and has a specific answer? I think the choice is easy on that.

One thing you need to look at with information is how long ago it was stated and if the person or doctor stating it has actual studies or is just taking an educational guess.
