That's odd. Almost every snake I encounter, is accompanied by this weird "shit" smell.

It was solid black and its body kept coming from the brush I was watching it exit from, and coming, and coming... an Indigo Snake, it was longer than me. I'd never seen one before! It tried to bite me when I picked it up, but my grip was not quite back far enough behind its head for it to succeed; it tried both sides, turning its head to the right after trying to bite me to the left. They are not poisonous, but I remember feeling totally relieved, as I was a child very proud of my snake catching skills. A bite would have meant failure even though I knew it was non-poisonous.
Almost every wild Garter Snake I ever picked up put out a shitty smelling liquid

The snake somehow found itself in the poop pit and when the poor woman took her squat, the snake bit her. Everyone that stills has primitive facilities at the beach now shine lights in to the latrines. Curiously, everyone has a real house now. (This happened in a place called Kihim on India's West Coast.)

While I know very little about medicine, I can't see what the harm would be in using one of those suction kits to try and remove some of the venom. If you can get even a portion of the venom out, seems it would help. Just so long as one was using it while also getting to medical attention as fast as possible.

I have never been able to a take a photo of a venomous snake in the wild. I have always been too busy running away screaming like a little girl.

I always like to play with them and found a pretty baby snake this summer...well dumbass me had no idea it was a baby copperhead until my dad walked out and yelled at me to put it the fuck down. I made him get a picture of me holding it first Since then I've come across tons of them (we live WAAYYY out in the country) and quite a few have coiled back in the strike pose when I come near all though none have ever struck at me. The neighbor always shoots them but I can't see hurting them when they're out in their natural habitat just trying to survive. I love the cute red bellied snakes I find around here
