Several web pages make the claim about funnelweb venom toxicity being 50x greater for human than mouse tissue. They attribute it to "UNDERHILL, D. 1988. Australia's Dangerous Creatures. Readers Digest, Sydney". I don't have access to this to confirm the citation for myself, which is why I haven't added it as a reference in the article. --Calair 00:53, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Currently, the only known LD50 values obtained directly on humans are from Nazi human experimentation and US-Government experiments! (MK ULTRA?) --User:anonymous 00:53, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
