Person holding snake


A teacher once told me that the majority of fatal rattlesnake bites in the US are in the head and shoulders. It happens when some fool grabs a snake by the tail and then whips it around or otherwise acts like an idiot to show off for friends. I somehow doubt that would happen to this guy.
