how is this guy still alive?? (also posted in Free Your Mind)
A South Carolina man tried to take a picture of his pet snake, a deadly Asiatic spitting cobra, but was bitten on the thumb in the
process. Teddy Terrants, 21, was paralyzed and on a ventilator before being flown to Kendall Regional Medical Center Thursday and
administered the antivenom. He did not regain consciousness until after receiving 10 vials of the anti-venom.
He said at first the bite felt like a bee sting. "I didn't feel nothing. I sat down. I was under the air condition(er). I just
started sweating. Pouring sweat," he said. The man refuses to blame his pet snake. "Not the snake┤s fault. My fault. I shouldn't
have been messing around his pen," he said. Terrants┤ wife is nine months pregnant and wants to get rid of the snake. He refuses.
