Re: Poisonous Snake Hiding In Toilet Bites Woman
Nice to see our "boy scout" post about knowing the difference between venomous snakes vs. non-venomous ones. There are no "poisonous" snakes. In other words, you can touch them and you won't die unless they bite you - and inject their venom. Having seen someone rub their eye after touching a poison-arrow frog, I can tell you there is a distinct, disturbing difference.
Had a job once exploring the sugar cane fields around the everglades. I wore snake proof boots, so the occasional water moccasin I saw didn't worry me. Alligators were a whole different story. Nothing like going through knee-deep water and hoping a gator didn't pull me under.
