Lethal Snake Bite?

Ah! Life in the Middle East. You never know when a killer snake may make an unannounced visit. Notice how quickly everyone moves when confronted with the possibility of almost certain death.

Of course, there is always one guy who behaves unpredictably. Is fainting an effective defense against a lethal snake bite? Unfortunately, the video ends before we know whether this guy survived.

Perhaps it was a cell phone video and the photographer ran out of memory in his camera. The snake appeared to be making its own quick exit when the video ended.

On a related note, the snake video incident might have been worse. One could have been bitten by a similar snake with two heads, which could mean twice the venom.

I know what you are thinking--that the photos are merely touched up to make it appear that it is a two-headed snake. The fact that there are two photos of the two-headed snake minimizes the possibility that the pics have merely been photoshopped. Doctoring two photos is almost twice as much work.

Plus, there are documented incidents of such reptiles in existence.
