Hmmm... not claiming to be knowledgeable, but do have some time -- 

Assuming my math is correct, an LD50 table here indicates a very loose but 
highly impressive approximation of 5.4gm tiger snake venom to kill a 30,000 kg 
sauropod (totally arbitrary and extreme sauropod mass, extrapolated from 
.18mg/kg sub-cutaneous injection, in mice). 

Wow.
