Comments
C. scut venom is one of the most lethal on earth, many times more powerful than a common cobra. Rattlesnake venom typically contains a hemotoxin. While some Mojave rattlesnakes (Venom B populations) exhibit hemotoxic venom, there are others (Venom A populations) that possess what is referred to as "Mojave Toxin", a potent neurotoxin, and still others that demonstrate both hemotoxic and neurotoxic venom. Due to the danger posed by the Mojave Toxin, the bite of a Mojave Rattlesnake is considered one of the most dangerous in the United States.
