The area where he was bitten was coincidentally near Snake Road.

Likely not a coincidence.

Sounds like Florida is competing with Australia for the 'most ways to die via animal/insect bites'

I think one might be advised to avoid Spider Lane and Panther Court as well.

Don't even slow down for the lights at the intersections.

Alligator Alley & Snake Road who the fark goes to places with like names that? Next time maybe take a leisurely stroll down Flying Machete Boulevard instead.
 
2014-04-13 07:32:39 AM
Ah, Florida, America's Australia.
 
2014-04-13 07:33:26 AM
Crocodile Court is next door.

Back in the 60s I drove down to FL with with dad at the wheel.
Pulled over to pee and almost stepped on one of those snakes.
My dad looked at the thing and said how do you knoe it's poisonous?
I explained the markings, and we looked it up later. Got a merit badge for it.

Alligator Alley is scary, especially at night with no phone service. But it's pretty much the only way to get to Miami. Thanks for nixing the speed rail, Scott you cock.

I've only been to Alligator Alley a couple of times, but it's not exactly like you have to pull over and get out to see any.  They're everywhere

Alligators... but there are not so many snakes.

"A alligator" isn't the worst thing here.
THE DAMN SNAKE ISN'T POISONOUS!
IT'S VENOMOUS!!!!!!4!
 
2014-04-13 08:46:41 AM
Been to Alligator Alley. You're pretty much walking around where you shouldn't to get bit by a snake.

/stung by a scorpion in the Sahara. Might have preferred a pit viper bit.
 
2014-04-13 08:48:45 AM
Also beware of Cougar Avenue.

I dunno...are you sure? Did you lick the snake to find out? Maybe that's why the snake bit the guy.

Unless you're driving 90 mph just to get the hell through there as fast as you can.
 
2014-04-13 09:32:32 AM
So a snake from Snake Road wanders over to Alligator Alley.  TURF WAR!!!!
 
2014-04-13 09:33:27 AM
I grew up near alligator alley so I'm getting a kick out of this.

/all it is is a stretch of highway connecting fort lauderdale and naples

my question is, what kind of pit viper? there are many many many varieties, and i wish i could say geography would limit the species in the everglades, but as we all know, there is a problem of invasive species there, so who can say really? that's one of the reasons i would like to know what sort of pit viper...

That was my thought, too.  The author couldn't be bothered to specifiy.  I would guess cottonmouth, but of course it certainly could have been a rattler or copperhead.  I guess "pit viper" sounds oh, so scary.  Good thing it wasn't a coral snake, or we would have been told about "a relative of the cobra!"

FTFA: The pit viper's venom, according to Miami-Dade's venom staff...

Venom staff. Great answer to "what do you do for a living?" OR "what's that in your pants?"

Likely a Moccasin given the area. Moccasins also have a tendency to chase you down if you get too close to their "territory". He would about have to step on a Rattlesnake in order to get bit. Florida really only has four dangerous venomous snakes and two of them (coral, and copperhead) are kind of a rare find.

well, then there's the Cobras that I understand are invading the Everglades but I've never seen one.

 The intersection of Alligator Ally and Snake Rd. must be one hell of a location to build a house.

Well, it IS a swamp, so you have to build four.

That all depends on whether the inhabitants have a nice rack.

The important lesson here is that if your boyfriend is snake bitten, you might be injured by it somehow.
