Bite of the rattlesnake 1


Rattlesnakes are one of most venomous snakes in the world though they vary significantly in size, territory, markings, and temperament. If the rattlesnake is not cornered or imminently threatened, it will usually attempt to flee from encounters with humans, but will not always do so. Here is a re-make video of such occasion. Even if you are a trained person it is always better to leave this animal at peace in the wild especially if the nearest help is miles away.

Rattlesnake‘s venom is destroying tissue, degenerating organs and causing blood clotting which will lead to the loss of a limb and even though rarely, death. Antivenom, when applied in time, reduces the death rate to less than 4%. Around 8.000 people are bitten by venomous snakes in the United States each year. On average, fewer than 15 snakebite deaths are reported.
