Kind of beautiful, isn't it? Such a marvel of evolution to create a venom that basically breaks down red blood cells immediately on contact.

It turns into tomato aspic?
 
2013-05-20 05:03:43 PM
I'd wager that some of that is caused by the bloods exposure to the air as well, combined with the venom.  Not saying is not scary, but I doubt a snake bite curdles your blood that much while its in your nice vacuumy veins.

Ah, venom. Simple in purpose, complex in design. There are three basic types:

Hemotoxic: attacks the blood and blood vessels, destroying them and causing the prey to hemorrhage to death.

Neurotoxic: attacks the nerve cells, disrupting the nervous signals and causing muscular paralysis and failure of the diaphragm and/or heart.

Myotoxic: attacks the muscle tissue, digesting it and causing death by trauma, bleeding, and other complications.

Of course, those are for the offensive venoms that snakes, ants, and other hunters use. There's also the defensive venoms used by lionfish, scorpionfish, caterpillars, and others whose job is to cause excruciating pain and trauma to attackers, even to the point of total system collapse from the overload of pain.

And yes, venom is MUCH different from poison, and you CANNOT use "poisonous" and "venomous" interchangeably.

That's the most basic difference. Poisons are contained in the flesh or certain organs, or exuded onto the skin. Eating or trying to eat them, or simply touching them in some cases, is a bad idea, and they're purely defensive in nature. Venoms are injected into the body by fang, spine, or stinger, and are both offense and defense. Also, poisons are composed of oils in a lipid base, while venoms are quite complex protein chains, which is why it's generally safe to drink venom without suffering ill effects.

Diluted Russell's viper venom is used as a treatment for bleeding in hemophiliacs.

That's scary stuff.

This is what I thought.  If you let that blood sit in that glass for just a few mintues it would end up looking like that through normal coagulation.  Still, once that stuff gets into the vessels around your heart or lungs...

2013-05-20 10:28:02 PM
I really hoped it wasn't going to be that particular clip.

The most important facet of the whole story is the speed of which the venom reacts in the blood - the guy even says it only takes seconds. So, what do these amateurs do? They make a farkin' edit and we never see the actual reaction that supposedly only takes seconds.

Idiots.

Yeah that was a dumb edit.  Let's see the actual process if it only takes seconds.

Now that snake season is upon us (in the southern woodlands anyway), what should we watch out for most? Copperheads? Little rattlers?? Coral snakes, if any??

Huck And Molly Ziegler: Now that snake season is upon us (in the southern woodlands anyway), what should we watch out for most? Copperheads? Little rattlers?? Coral snakes, if any??


Copperheads have weak venom, they're not a big threat.
Rattlers are dangerous and very common, but they're rarely fatal.
Coral snakes are a big "Don't mess with". They're related to cobras and have the same neurotoxic venom.
