Was that an opinion or a verified medical proof? This link appears to contradict the opinion that alcohol can slow the spread of snake venom.

<quoted text>That would only be true about a python going after its prey. Otherwise, it too would likely bite and release as that particular snake would be far too small if it were a python to prey on a human. I am sure it would rather get away than hang on to a human hand if it were a python.
please note that the swamps and jungles of Nam crawl with snakes , Pythons bite because of fear or hunger ... a scared snake escapes .. a trapped snake fights ....

pythons have teeth not fangs lots of teeth a few hundred ... bite is extremely painful

The name of your city. No one have noticed? Smile. I think not so much alcohol as volume of beer dilute his blood and save him life.

Tragic about the guy. Tourniquet and avoidance of unnecessary exertion is a mantra for snakebite. It seems he hadn't got the memo.
Yes the poison spreads by means of the lymph system and that's only activated by movement. I heard of a guy bitten by a tiger snake who was found alive after three days because he rested under a tree and stayed very still.

Tiger snake venom contains potent presynaptic neurotoxins (toxins in venom that cause paralysis or muscle weakness). Also present are postsynaptic neurotoxins, which are less potent but more rapid acting than the presynaptic neurotoxins.

Brown snake venom contains potent presynaptic neurotoxins (toxins in venom that cause paralysis or muscle weakness). Also present are postsynaptic neurotoxins, which are less potent but more rapid acting than the presynaptic neurotoxins.

Brown snake venom also contains potent procoagulants (toxins in venom that interfere with blood clotting, causing consumption of the clotting protein, fibrinogen; this causes defibrination, with non-clottable blood, putting victims at risk of major bleeding). Brown snake procoagulants are amongst the most powerful snake venom pro-coagulants known.

POINT: not the same poison

Sounds screwy to me. He may be full of something other than the Holy Spirit. The plain fact of the matter is that the booze may have made things worse for him. Perhaps he is looking for an excuse to justify his drinking.

You are right there, or surprising one. I have a saying, when I get mad. "Madder than a stepped on rattlesnake"!
The town I lived in, Lillooet BC Canada, has rattlesnakes, and most parts of the Okanagan/Thompson areas. But in Lillooet there is a pretty green multi colored snake called a bull snake, and it (the Indians say has two heads makes it look like a rattler, so predators leave it alone), is beautiful. My friend filmed it swallowing a rat, it was covered in venom, was cool to see.
Also another friend of mine, he trapped and kept two black colored rattlers in his home in a cage, and no way anyone could get in that cage or could they escape, but they were cool. When it was found out that he had these snakes, he had to release them back in the bushes, DOF would not do it...lol! Actually town of Lillooet has not had any sitings of rattlesnakes in years, and Indians say it is because of the mountain that divides this town and town of Lytton, is always moving and tremors, so they will not cross. LOL!
There are your regular harmless snakes there, and one called a rubber boa. http://www.bcreptiles.ca/snakes/rubberboa.htm
Here we have pigmy rattlers, water moccasins, coral snakes, and diamondback rattlers. We also have may other non venomous snakes. I have caught black snakes, ring neck snakes, garter snakes, rat snakes, and once caught a coral snake which showed absolutely no signs of aggression here in Florida. And it was the real thing and not a scarlet king snake or any other mimic of a coral snake. My next door neighbor took the snake, put it in a bucket with a lid on it and released it in a heavily wooded area away from populated areas and hopefully the snake lived happily ever after.

<quoted text>It was actually in the office area not the hockey courts and was a juvenile snake, he said he didnt even realise he got bitten.
Sure. Grass is by no means the only place they lurk.

BTW I was watching a documentary recently an it seems that the fact that the snake was a juvenile hardly matters. They are born with the "Full Monty" of adult venom.

I guess that makes sense according to Nature in terms of the protective role venom serves for the snake, and for securing prey.

Snakes are very common up here so alot of people know how to handle snakes, unfortunately brown snakes look similar to an Olive python which are completey harmless and one of the more common species of snake up here.
