Re: Rattlesnake Myth?

Speaking as someone who was bit by an adult rattlesnake, I would say that both are probably (haven't been bit by a baby and don't plan to) about the same intensity. For the same species at least. I always wondered and wanted to know the truth. Thanks for your answers.

Rattlesnake Myth?

Okay, I have been hearing this same thing for years and I bet all of you have too: "Baby rattlesnakes inject more venom because they cannot control themselves." I don't think this makes sense. Why would a snake with smaller venom glands inject more? Or am I misunderstanding something technical? Is t...
