It is used for snakes with hemotoxic venom which destroys blood cells and coagulation proteins, and does not have the same action on neurotoxic snakes (such as the cobra, mamba, and coral snakes).
The older rattlers have a more hemotoxic aspect in their venom, meaning it affects the blood and organs, causing a breakdown and inflammation of the body - again, digesting the prey from the inside out.
Researchers are investigating whether similar mechanisms protect the mongoose from hemotoxic snake venoms. "
