I have a few questions about reading the LD50 chart.Hope someone could clear it up for me.
I have been looking at AB's LD50 list and I se different value for the same species ex. Mesobuthus eupeus is listed with two different value - 1.45 and 45.5 Rolling Eyes why's that ?
And what is it with the high values >100 and almost all the tityus are way over 1.0 some even over 8.0 Shocked thats on this list http://www.terra-animals.de/LetaleDosis/Scorpiones Maybe its true with the tityus but I just thought they would be much lower
Is it just me that is stupid or is there something wrong with some of the values in these list ?

Another LD50 Chart for comparing http://web.singnet.com.sg/~chuaeecc/venom/rpotent.htm
Both links is from AB's LD50 sections.Hope it's ok posting them here.

Some are subcutaneous tests, some are intravenous, some are intramuscular . . . add to that the fact that mice may respond differently than humans, and you get quite a wide range of LD50 values and some that are higher / lower than you'd expect.
