    • Your mate is not very smart, I get being bit 34 times as a reptile handler, but 13 car wrecks and two bike accidents I have to wonder if he shot himself seven times, he can't be to bright.

    • After seeing that Puff Adder video which smashed the interior if that rat, I am guessing a puff adder bite to the face would pretty much destroy a persons face.

    • @jett miller yes I understand if you do that I understand a lot. But the problem was that the people who bought the snakes they bought them to abuse them because they didn’t like snakes they bought 2 and made them breed them started beating them like mad for no reason

    • If a copperhead did that to his face, I wouldn't want to imagine how it would look from a puff adder bite. If that bit you on your snot box, it would definitely be checking out time for you.

  • ..I'm telling you, from someone who lives where there are LOTS of Copperheads..they are NOT "mildly venomous" or "semi-venomous" has always concerned me that they are so often presented that, they will not take you out as quickly or surely as a rattlesnake, but they can grow to be quite big, and are much grumpier and more prone to strike than most rattlesnakes, particularly a timber rattlesnake...and their bites can be VERY nasty and painful, and yes, sometimes life-threatening...remember, they are closely related to the Cottonmouth, which has a really nasty and potentially life-threatening bite. I have noticed the European Adder is also presented as being semi-venomous or mildly venomous, and not dangerous also...since I know nothing about European Adders, I can't comment on that one, but I wonder how it's bite compares to a Copperhead?....

  • I live in Eastern North Carolina in the United States and had a copperhead go straight thru my legs while I was chopping wood. Not sure who was scared more, me or the copperhead. Closest I have come to a venomous wild snake. 🤔

  • Please! I'm really curious about this man's line of work/lifestyle. It's not only he's been bit by (venomous?) snakes several times, but ran over by cars like twice as much as a person who is considered ran over by cars too much throughout his life and shot more times than your average gangster. No disrespect meant, I'm just imagining this man as the most reckless person ever!

So this begs the question - was Natie wearing that shirt when he got bitten, crashed cars and motorbikes, electrocuted and shot all those times? That would explain some things for sure :P 🤣😎

  • In Texas here I have them in my yard every year. My dogs get bitten every couple of years. Since it's normally not fatal most hospitals don't even keep the antivenin on hand. It's expensive and they seldom have to use it. Benedryl and cold compresses do just fine. It's what the vets do for most cases. My big dog was bitten a couple weeks ago, we saw it happen, but it was pretty much a dry bite. Slight swelling gone overnight, but each person and each animal and each bite is different. This bite was frightening

  • I know this man has extensive knowledge with snakes, but he is downplaying how deadly a copperhead is. The one he is handling at the beginning is capable of killing any human rather easily, depending on the amount of venom dispersed. Its a good thing mature snakes will often conserve venom, and offer up a defensive strike or two before they are willing to inject a massive amount of venom into something they know cant be swallowed.
