  • Abstract : Venom neutralization properties and protein content of serum from 11 taxa of Lampropeltis were studied. Most serum samples contained 6.5% to 9.5% protein. Lampropeltis g. getulus and L. g. floridana serum showed the broadest spectrum of effective neutralization of venoms from 10 crotaline taxa. Lampropeltis t. triangulum, L. t. hondurensis, L. mexicana greeri, and L. alterna effectively neutralized many of the venoms assayed, but were less efficacious than the other Lampropeltis… CONTINUE READING
