A bite from one of these bad boys does the opposite. The hemotoxin thins the blood. Between 12-24 hours after the bite (where you will feel little or no effect) you will begin to bleed from every orifice.

-Boomslang is the name btw.

so what if you got both to bite you?

What if you get bitten by this and the rattlesnake at the same time?

it is the soul of man , well in the metaphysical sense ... remember why the devil needs blood in the "story's" that is the contract to use your blood as a seal or portal to your entity

that is not from a rattlesnake. it's venom from a russel's viper.

Well I tel women they can suck my dick and they will be fine but they still don't do it...
#124 to #37 - anon (03/16/2013) [-]
that is correct because rattle snake venom is designed to affect the bloodstream but by drinking it the venom doesnt enter our bloodstream
#138 to #37 - anon (03/16/2013) [-]
Hence the term venom and not poison...

Somewhere in your entire intestinal tract, which more than likely you do.
User avatar #82 to #74 - rieskimo (03/16/2013) [-]
Not really, I'm pretty sure the acid in your stomach would take it out. But I can't imagine that it would be something I'd want to test from a particularly nasty snake.
User avatar #86 to #82 - vatra (03/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, but can have ulcers, or just small intestinal bleeds. As for the stomach acid neutralizing it, you are right to an extent, I forgot about that, but it depends on how much if it would neutralize it all or not.
User avatar #92 to #86 - rieskimo (03/16/2013) [-]
Considering that the venom wouldn't sit that much in the esophagus and would pretty much go express to the stomach, I'd say it's a good chance you wouldn't have to worry too much(assuming you're tip-top). But once it gets to the stomach, unless you're chugging liters of the stuff, I'd say you're pretty safe as long as you're without a particularly nasty ulcer. The acid would neutralize most of the venom(I would imagine) but that's only part of the one-two punch that our bodies dole out to things entering the GI tract. The stomach has a huge surface area and constantly secretes mucus, any venom that make it to the stomach would be watered down pretty well by the mucus if not neutralized by the acid. Also, bile and any of the enzymes and internal fauna(bacteria and whatnot) would do a good job of picking apart the venom.
Your GI tract wouldn't see too much harm, most of the real vascular areas are further down anyway. The human body is a surprizingly hardy organism. Also, bile and any of the enzymes and internal fauna(bacteria and whatnot) would do a good job of picking apart the venom.

Yeah, I know, but venom is really hard to break down, hence why it is so bad for our system.

The venom makes the blood clot.

Think of a blood thinner in reverse.

User avatar #84 - skubasteve (03/16/2013) [-]
This isn't a rattle snake. Considering the location and the fact that its a hemotoxic venom its more than likely some type of viper.


User avatar #95 to #84 - skubasteve (03/16/2013) [-]

Other type of viper*

Weird... I was always told that most rattlesnake bites aren't lethal per se, just that they could be if you didn't get medical attention for long enough or they got you right on an artery or something bad like that.

Either way, this looks so painful I think I'd almost rather die quickly.
User avatar #18 to #17 - viscii (03/16/2013) [-]
This gif is cut into three parts, the venom, the stirring and the clot. In reality when the venom enters your bloodstream it starts to do exactly the same as what happens here. Your immune system will try to fight it, but it can't stop it for long, that's why you need to get to a hospital ASAP. If you don't make it in time your blood will clot exactly like that in a major vein of your body, typically the Vena Cava or Pulmonary Artery, but can be in your legs, arms or pelvis. This will cause a Deep vein thrombosis which will restrict and eventually stop blood flow, thus killing you.

Damn nature you scary!

Oh god.... an honors in bio.... I pay attention but Biology is soooo ******* boring. The only interesting parts is when we're studying human/ animal physical Biology. But atm we're doing plant cloning and reproduction.... things like osmosis, asexual reproduction, mitosis and meiosis, all really **** .
User avatar #51 to #49 - hidin (03/16/2013) [-]
i actually find all of that interesting. What i really want to do in life is study cells and find out exactly what the **** they do and how they do it.

the Marines is a pretty respectable decision. Free college, a good amount of money, discipline and the skill to kill any one 22 different ways with just your hands would be nice. And i do love that gif, i think its quite exciting to see how the white blood cell hunts the bacteria down. It really shows how awesome our Immune system is

Right I got that... But what's the timeline? Guess it depends, but what's the mean timeline (or median if that's more relevant)?
User avatar #20 to #19 - viscii (03/16/2013) [-]
Depends on a lot of things. Proximity to the heart of the bite, physical fitness of the victim, physical strength of the victim, age, strength of immune system...ect

But on average I'd say if you weren't at a hospital in at least half an hour you're ******
User avatar #22 to #20 - Trigonous (03/16/2013) [-]
It really depends on the snake, most rattlesnakes aren't venomous enough to kill anyone but the infirm, the elderly, and very young children. In Arizona at least, where there's usually a shortage of antivenom, they'll tell you to tough it out.
