    No more messing with snakes after seeing this.

    I thought this would be better up here instead of in the OT thread.

    If you have a weak stomach do not view the pictures. I guess this is what happens when you get bit by a rattle snake.

    From the article:

    13 surgeries, $700,000 worth of helicopter flights, surgeries, and hospital stays (paid by my insurance of course), and 20 months later, I am very happy with the outcome of this experience and my good fortune of getting through all this without any significant loss.

    good lord...i know some snake bites are pretty serious...glad to hear everthing went well....sounds like you had a very near brush with dying...thx for sharing...i personally think that snakes are beautiful creatures when they are being watched on my 55inch hdtv...i do like looking at them in the wild though...but if i did not know what i was dealing with i would certainly not provoke one...

    That was not me. I found that while surfing. Thought others might like to see it.

    Looks more like a shark bite what split his arm open were they just trying to remove the vein with the venom that looks nasty.
