If I understand correctly you want to know if some venomous snakes are not as deadly to humans as others?

If this is what you are asking...

Yes there are some venomous snakes that people have a higher chance of survival than others.

Why don't you watch the following shows.

Venom ER http://www.llu.edu/llumc/emergency/venom-er/

Snake Wranglers AKA Reptile Rulers on Direct TV. (For some reason Direct TV lists the show as Reptile Rulers)

You could also watch other reptile shows like Steve Irwin

These shows will help inform you.

BTW, ATROX (Western Diamondback) means dark, fierce, savage - referring to the sometimes savage disposition of this species.

Put it simply for the wee man..

YES! Venomous snakes will kill you! Granted you can get treated with anti venom*, but as you are asking as to whether they can kill you or not, I would venture to guess that you knowledge is limited. The best bit of advice is this - you see a snake that looks annoyed/makes a rattling noise.. turn 180 degrees the other way and walk fast. If you can then see it from a safe distance, then enjoy the view.

*Which is damn expensive!

BTW guys, I hope you don't start corecting my English.. remember, some of us speak and write Queen's English (And no, not the New York variety )

they arent as venomous as a lot of other rattlesnakes, and crofab does a really good job at treating bites so not as many people die from their bites anymore. but they do still kill quite a few every year.

at one point im fairly certain they killed more than any other venomous snake.

they also come into contact with people more often than other snakes, so there are a lot of bites.
