Explores the strange world of the oceans most venomous animals, including deadly snakes and fish.
"Miracle Venom" explores the strange and often bizarre world of the oceans most venomous animals. Dr. Glen Burns handles deadly sea snakes with only his bare hands, and a small cone snail hunts, paralyses, and then eats its prey alive. The waters of Papua New Guinea and Australia's Great Barrier Reef harbor an exceptional variety of venomous fish and invertebrates. The poisons of these animals are some of the most lethal known to man. They also, however, hold enormous potential in the development of therapeutic drugs.
