    And that's why I'm not interested in keeping venomous snakes!!!

    I love how surly pit vipers always look. At least you can't claim false advertising.
    According to my friend, it is very painful. He was on some of the strongest pain killers for weeks. The feeling is a melting feeling? But like Cdavidson said, Sam had a few options with his finger. And he just had amputation the other day and seems to be ok now. Its been a long and painful recovery. But at least its a recovery and not something worse.
    And to think that all this was just a scratch and not a full on bite. Its very humbling to me and reminds me to never forget to respect such an amazing, beautiful, but dangerous animal.

    Yes. The snake in the back is another albino rattler.

    Re: Friend got bitten by Albino WD Rattler *graphic picture warning*

    I'm just curious here...

    My grandfather has been using Westerns for hunting dog training for over 30 years, and he has been bitten about 6 times, I believe. At least those were the bites that he received venom from. And it NEVER looked like that. I have personally seen him bitten twice, and seen four of the six bites at all stages of recovery. I was just wondering if the fingers are really THAT much more sensitive to the hematoxic venom that these guys put out? This bite looks really sinister. My grandfather once got a hot bite from a 7ft wild caught female who might as well have had Lucifer himself living inside of her, and I don't recall it destroying that much tissue.

    Anyway, I hope he makes a full recovery! Beautiful snake too! =)

    Oh dear. HOTs may be beautiful but that's why I wouldn't get one
