I'll do better... I'll have my wife take the money to ya in person!

You guys know what started my path back to the chit house? She found a snake skin that was shed in the **** English garden of hers in the backyard and wanted me to look for it... She got pissed when I said not to worry about it 'cuz her dog would get bit first.

That must have been very scary. Did you kill the snake and take it with you to the hospital so they could identify? I think thats what you are supposed to do. If it happened to my daughter I'd freak out way too much and forget. Unfortunately we have rattlesnakes, cotton mouths, and copperheads around here. I hate those **** copperheads. They blend in too well and you have no warning.

She got bit in the front yard; she was barefoot. Long story but she was smart enough at 10 years old to know something bit her; it was around noon if I remember right. Fire Battalion 119 was just down the slope from the house in Walnut; they found the young rattler and as you say, chopped its head off. They took her and the snake to Brea Community where they ID'd it.

They administered anti-venon (It was funny to think about it now. These four huge firemen/paramedics were rolling these tiny bottles in their hands to melt the coagulated anti-venom. You can't shake it 'cuz the coagulated stuff would get stuck in the IV.) but by 10 PM or so (?), the skin on her leg looked like this grey you see when you type in a response. The swelling was up to her knee. They were going to cut it to release the pressure at midnight if the anti-venon didn't arrest the poison. Luckily it did. I felt like crying as there was nothing I could do.

Yeah, that face is freaky! But the skin sure looks like it's from a snake (no legs). What kind, I don't know... But man, did I give her the wrong answer.

Ray, that looks like a mature snake. I don't know if it was venomous or not, but baby rattlers are the most dangerous, I'm told, as they can't regulate the venom they inject. They "shoot their whole wad" when they strike. As such, it's bad. And I'm sorry to read your wife was ill...

pacific rattlesnake, very venomous

The Pacific rattlesnake is diurnal in its habits. Bites from this species are common in the Northwestern states. Large enough to cause a fatality. Pacific rattlesnakes can be found from sea level to 11,000 feet.
Average length 3 feet, maximum length 5 feet.
