Re: [RC] CA rattlers - Truman Prevatt

However, the number of people that die getting bit by a coral snake is very small. You got to work hard to get a coral snake bite. I just check the stats - on the average only one person a year in Florida dies of a snake bite - by far most are pit viper bites. Given the population and the climate - that's very small.

Simple reason - this list is all in the Cobra or Mamba family. Very strong neurotoxins. Rattle snakes are pit vipers.
