Comparative electrophoretic studies were conducted on the venom of the rinkals (Hemachatus haemachatus). Egyptian cobra (Naja haje haje) and puffadder (Bitis arietans). Considerable differences in electrophoretic characteristics were found between fresh venom and commercial venom samples from the same species of snake. These differences could be attributed partly to the instability of snake venom under conditions of drying and storage.
