An unclear grammar.
In the "Effect of bites on humans" section, the sentence beginning with "A lack of burning pain and edema" is unclear.
Does it mean "A lack of burning pain and a lack of edema", or does it mean "An edema but a lack of burning pain". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:56, 6 February 2016 (UTC)}
I have read from a few sources that rattlesnakes without rattles are becoming far more common, because humans go out of their way to unnecessarily kill rattlesnakes that have rattles, wherease those without rattles manage to escape human attention. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:57, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
The most cited reference is "Rubio 1998". But none of the citations show the name of the Rubio article, or its location and date. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrican (talk • contribs) 13:44, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
