Mexican Researchers Excell at Venomous Quest

When hospitalized in Tucson after the rattlesnake incident, I heard some discussion of Mexican antivenom (or antivenin) research—in fact, I was solicited to participate in a study, but I would have had to have lived nearby for the follow-ups, so I said no, give me the current antivenin. But as the belt buckle of the Venom Belt, Mexico has ample opportunity for researchers.

My one scorpion sting did not require treatment. In fact, I think it was a mild CNS stimulant.
