Venomous Snake Goodness

Welcome.

This site is designed to be an educational guide through some of the interesting and scientific facts about venomous snakes, and snake venom. It is not meant to serve as a functional guide for the treatment of snake bite or to advise anyone who has been bitten by a venomous snake. There are many fine sites for real venom snake fans and collectors and I suggest checking out the links section.

To get around the site just use the table of contents below. Simply click the link you wish to visit. If you find the background music to be bothersome, then you can use the midi-player dialogue box at the top of each pageto stop the music. Happy Browsing.
