A study of herpetological neurotoxins

This presentation will provide an overview of amphibian and reptile conservation on federal lands, with some examples of the work by Argonne National Laboratory. Awareness programmes are needed to reduce levels of persecution. Snakes were both revered and worshipped and feared by early civilizations.
