    Good morning all,

    Per ...

    Note the quote w/ "iron wires". It's a historic translation of "wire".

    Believe it or not, there are still many here who believe emergency treatment of a poisonous snake bite is the old make the incisions over fang puncture marks and suck out poison.

    The article's X-ray picture cites South China Morning Post. This is the Hong Kong newspaper - similar to Washington Post.

    Good info on the PROPER way to handle a snake bite. Thanks for posting Pragmatist. Chopping off bitten extremity a bit over board, okay a lot over board.

    We need to get Keith back to weigh in on the Australian part. Growing up in Arizona we got a healthy dose of how to handle a snake bite at a very early age. We knew all the creepy crawly things, and what they could do, and we showed them a healthy respect.

    Good article on what to do, and what NOT to do.
