Snake Venom
By: C.M.Shorter

Snake Venom - Group Characteristics
Group Fang-Type Venom Type
Proteroglypha Fixed Fangs * Usually Dominant Neurotoxic Venom
Solenoglypha Folded Fangs * Usually Dominant Hemotoxic Venom
* Most poisonous snakes have both neurotoxic and hemotoxic venoms and the venom dominance can vary even within the same family of snake. These differences within the same family of snake usually occur due to in habitat, prey and geographic location. It's extremely important to not overgeneralize any species here. For example, a North American Rattlesnake has hemotoxic venom, while Mexican Rattlesnakes usually have neurotoxic venoms.
