Median lethal dose (LD,,) is a way to measure the lethal dose of a toxin or pathogen or radiation. The value determines the lethal dose required to kill 50% of a population.
The median lethal doses of snake species' venom have been determined through testing on mice. While this is not 100% accurate measure of how lethal the snake venom is to humans,
