Rule #979

Ounce for ounce, the venom of the Mojave Green rattlesnake is the most potent poison of all snakes.

"The most poisonous species is the Mojave Rattler, which has a venom 75 times as potent as an Indian Cobra. The most dangerous species are the diamondbacks, which can possess enough venom to kill several hundred humans, even though their venom is considerably less potent than some species such as the Mojave or Midget Faded Rattlesnakes."

Just a clarifiation:

the mojave green rattlesnake has the most potent venom of all rattlesnakes...not of all snakes.

the statement about the cobra is false...
