Daniel Dempsey was a grad student stationed in the jungles of Monteverde, Costa Rica when he first encountered the danger of a snakebite. The biologist was walking through the forest one day, catching bats to study them for malaria, when he almost stepped on the black, arrow-shaped head of an enormous pit viper—a fer-de-lance. That night as he described his encounter to the local family he was staying with, they began to tear up. They told him that earlier that year a “terciopelo,” what Costa Ricans call their country’s deadliest snake, had bitten the family’s five year-old niece. The hospital, a few hours drive away, didn’t have any antivenom in their stocks. She didn’t make it.It was Dempsey’s memory of that lit... Read More

It produces a neurotoxin, domoic acid, that works its way up the food chain, building up in shellfish like crabs and clams. And when humans eat those shellfish, the neurotoxin leads to a disorder known as amnesic shellfish poisoning—featuring symptoms like seizures, memory loss, and even death.This is a particular problem for the west coast, which in 2015 took a $100 million hit when a domoic acid outbreak forced officials to shutter crab fisheries.
