Deadly Death Adder Bite

Death adders are snakes native to Australia and New Guinea.

Although their bite can be fatal, they typically move away when humans approach them instead of attacking.

It’s so important to stay vigilant!

A bite from a death adder can cause a range of symptoms that vary widely depending on the severity of the bite.

The victim will experience severe pain around the bite site.

The area around the bite can become swollen, red, and tender.

A victim may experience dizziness, headache, or vomiting.

The area surrounding the bite may feel weak, making it difficult for the individual to move the affected limb.

Venom can affect the respiratory system, resulting in respiratory distress.

In severe cases, paralysis of the muscles may occur, leading to difficulty breathing and, eventually, death.

Contact a medical service immediately if a death adder bites someone.
