Severed Rattlesnake Head Bites Texas Man

Severed Rattlesnake Head Bites Texas Man

A Texas man is recovering after he was bitten by a severed rattlesnake head.

Jennifer Sutcliffe, from Corpus Christi, told KIII TV that her husband had been clearing the yard on Memorial Day weekend when he saw and decapitated a rattlesnake.

But when he bent down to pick up the snake to dispose of it, the head bit him on the hand.

By Saturday (New Zealand time ), the Warriors could be the first repeat champs since the Miami Heat did the deal in 2012 and 2013. Curry, a 30-year-old guard, broke the old mark of eight 3-pointers in a finals game set by Ray Allen of Boston in 2010.

If being bitten by a zombie snake isn't bad enough, it turns out that Mr. Sutcliffe's problems were only just beginning. But. he started having seizures, lost his visions and began bleeding internally. Doctors told her her husband might not make it, even after giving him huge amounts of anti-venom.

"A normal person who is going to get bit is going to get two to four doses of antivenom", Sutcliffe told the news station.

Trauma surgeon michael Halpert said that neither sucking the venom out yourself nor using a home remedy will help deal with the bite. "He had to rip the snake's head off", Jennifer said".

Just last month Neymar admitted that he was anxious about the prospect of injury derailing another World Cup campaign. Tite said there was no doubt that Neymar gives them something extra but said that needed to be kept in perspective.

A rattlesnake can still bite and release venom after its death because of a reflex action. According to reports, the man from Texas required 26 doses of anti-venom after the snakebite. He's now in stable condition.

He beheaded it with a shovel, but he soon found out how unsafe a dead snake can be.

"A severed viper head certainly can deliver a risky bite, as can the unsecured head of a recently "killed" snake", Harry Greene, a herpetologist and professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University, told NPR. Living snakes typically strike quickly and rear back from whatever threat they perceive, but because the one in this instance was dead, it most likely latched on until someone forcibly removed it.
