Question 1 Explanation:
The correct answer is Heloderma
To the genius and the heroism of Hering the world owes this remedy and many another of which this has been the forerunner. Hering's first experiments were made he was studying the botany and zoology of the Upper Amazon for the German Government. Except his wife, all those about him were natives, who told him so much about this dreaded snake that he offered a good reward for a live specimen. At last one was brought in a bamboo box and those who brought it immediately fled and all his native servants with them. Hering stunned the snake with a blow on the head as the box opened, then, holding its head in a forked stick, he pressed its venom out of the poison bag upon sugar of milk. The effect of handling the virus and preparing the lower potencies was to throw Hering into a fever with tossing delirium and mania much to his wife's dismay. Towards morning he slept and on waking his mind was clear. He drank a little water to moisten his throat and the first question this indomitable prover asked was: "What did I do and say ?" His wife remembered vividly enough. The symptoms were written down and this was the first installment of the proving of this wonderful snake remedy. The natives crept back one by one next day and were astonished to find Hering and his wife alive. The snake grows to seven feet and upwards in length, has fangs nearly an inch long, a reddish brown skin marked along the back with black brown rhomboidal spots. Nearly all the provings of this medicine were made with the 30c and higher potencies.
