SNAKES, which are plentiful throughout Australia, are frequently blamed for losses of livestock but there are few proven cases of snakebite causing death in farm animals. The reasons for this will become evident from the following description of the common venomous snakes, their habits and the effect of injected venom on animals bitten.
