California Teen Bitten by Six Rattlesnakes, Updates FB On Way To Hospital


LINK

Yeeeeooouch... Video at link.

quote:

It took 24 doses of anti-venom, four days of hospital intensive care, and two weeks at home for 16-year-old Vera Oliphant to recover from six rattlesnake bites.

----

On the way to Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, Oliphant was somehow able to put a post on her Facebook page: “i got bit by a rattle snake & now i,m about to go to l.C.U .. it hurts like a ___ & my leg is paralyzed ._.”

I'm glad she's ok now.

But it must be asked....did she include an Instagram picture of her bites with the status?

is this true? Im not arguing, I've just never heard of that before. That's amazing if true.


That story is seriously my worse fricking nightmare. I've seen far too many rattlers, cotton mouths, and copperheads in my time. Hate snakes.

this is true. Matured snakes know how to control their venom on prey while juveniles do not. Ending result is juvenile snakes putting most of their venom into their prey
