Dealing With A Rat Snake Bite

Rat snakes, the friendly inhabitants of numerous regions worldwide, are harmless serpents.

They boast sleek bodies, striking patterns, and exceptional tree-climbing skills

Their wardrobe includes earthy browns, greens, grays, and black.

However, caution is advised as they can occasionally become a menace if they sense danger or are provoked.

They have a slim figure, stretching out to a length of 6-8 feet.

One of the most common symptoms of a rat snake bite is pain and swelling at the site of the bite.

It occurs as the snake’s teeth penetrate the skin and tissue, resulting  in a puncture wound that can cause inflammation and discomfort.

The pain can range from mild to severe, depending on the snake’s size and the bite’s depth.

Rat snake bites may also cause bleeding and bruising, as the snake’s teeth can damage blood vessels and tissue.

Bleeding is usually minimal and can be stopped by applying pressure to the wound.

Bruising may occur around the bite site and can last for several days.
