Snake Bites

The threats people face are numerous. They can arise from a variety of situations, in a variety of places. One threat that people face is snakes. From afar, snakes make seem harmless, but people need to be careful when near snakes. If they become scared, they can seriously injure an individual.

Snake bites can be both venomous and non-venomous, and both types can be detrimental to an individual’s health. When people get bit by non-venomous snakes, their flesh can get infected by germs. Moreover, they can be left with serious bruises that leave a permanent mark. Additionally, because non-venomous snakes’ bites are meant to grip and hold a victim, when a non-venomous snake bites someone the pain that is caused is very serious.

As bad as non-venomous snake bites are, however, venomous snake bites are even worse. For one thing, venomous snake bites are, by definition, poisonous. As a result, the poison can lead to a whole host of negative effects. People can die, or they may have to get the part of their body that was bit amputated. Additionally, because venomous snake bites are meant to rip and tear flesh, the damages to people’s skin can be very severe.

It is important to remember that snakes tend to avoid people, but if frightened they will attack. As a result, venues that display snakes need to be sure that visitors are protected. Moreover, snake handlers need to make sure that people who are nearby cannot be bitten by the snakes.
