Greetings all,

The snake doesn't have to be very recently dead to cause problems. Several
years ago while out riding around the framing country of rural Arkansas my
friends and I came across a large cottonmouth that had been run over. I
wanted to see the fangs and and proceeded to pry open its mouth. A tiny
droplet of venom hit me in the eye and in a matter of minutes I was in
extreme pain. The eye swelled nearly shut and no amount of rinsing with
water seemed to help. Will I ever be that curious about snakes with fangs
again? What do you think?
