It’s no wonder this man freezes to ice in this intense stand-off between him and this rattlesnake, but luckily he keeps his cool handles the situation perfectly.
Throughout the ordeal, the man maintains eye contact with the snake, a critical move in such dangerous encounters. After the longest minutes in his life, the snake retreats at last.
Known for its potent venom, it can deliver a life-threatening bite. The venom is hemotoxic, causing tissue damage, internal bleeding, and intense pain.
Eye contact with a snake can be a defensive strategy, as it allows you to monitor its movements and anticipate its actions.
By keeping a steady gaze and minimizing movement, the man in the video reduces the likelihood of provoking an attack, buying precious time to plan his next move.
Once injected, it begins to break down blood cells and tissue, causing severe swelling, pain, and potentially leading to systemic bleeding disorders.
Without immediate medical attention, the venom can cause significant organ damage and may even be fatal.
