Where in your lief do you just pick up a snake, without ID'ing it properly. There is a big difference between a BHS and a stiletto.

Sorta off topic, but I think our friends like Nutty Natie posing with Snouted Cobras and Green mambas in his hands also contributes to this problem of snake cowboys... How stupid to get bitten and THEN identify it... Not even to mention the fact that both got bitten!

Hahahahaha mailjvdb.
That was funny, catch again after your friend just got bitten.
It`s one of those cases, look my friend just jumped into a fire, let me join him.
Apparently when his mom asked if he would jump in because one of his friends did, his answer was probably "Yes mom"

The text says the Hospital gave them a tetanus shot, why would they do this?

@Marc-Whenever a foreign object enters the body (bites, cuts ECT) the patient usually gets a Td injection to prevent some nasty problems

Tetanus shot is rather standard procedure when someone is bitten by a animal if I'm not mistaken.

I just keep laughing when I think of the picture of the two of them consoling each other on the bed. "Kyk, my seertjie is meer eina as jou seertjie" Hahaha,brings tears to my eyes! They surely deserve each other! "Snake bite victim" my ass, more like victim of stupidity!

“I knew from the shape of the head that it was a stiletto snake as I had previous knowledge of it,” he said.

Obviously not!

That both were bitten is deplorable. May they both recover well.
On the plus side, chances are they'll probably never make the same mistake again...
