Reptile Encounters

An Israeli man milking venom at the country's only venom extraction facility was bitten by a viper. He was hospitalized, and experienced severe symptoms: "He vomited, had abdominal pain, and his blood pressure went dangerously low. Soon, the palm of the bitten hand became severely swollen, causing the doctors to fear that the swelling could spread throughout his body." Antivenom stabilized him, and the arm was saved.
