Ring necks are venomous.

NOT funny Z!

Superman's kryptonite apparently is Antivenin......a coma for 3 days at 12 or 13 years old after being bitten taught me this.

when I read that Z, I got an instant pit in my stomach as I recalled picking him up yesterday to let him outside.....LMAO


WHEW..............

Their fangs are too tiny to be a threat to humans.

I don't know Ed...remember my baby sidewinder? He pierced my cuticle with one fang. But I agree that the fang probably wasn't long enough to penetrate into thicker skin. But I also learned that THINKING you're safe isn't good enough! 🐍

Funny but true.
I was bitten on the ankle by a Carolina Pygmy rattlesnake when I was about 15.
I was miles from home. Hunting in the woods.
My ankle swelled up a little and turned purplish. But we (uninsured mother and myself) didn't seek hospital care because my neighbor who was a livestock doctor said it would be fine. It had already been hours. No permanent damage done.
He was right.
Thankfully
(I still had the snake for identification purposes.)

It seems reckless these days. But back then, it's just what we did.
