Clicking selfies is the newest fad among people and some have taken the art to levels unimaginable while others have risked their lives in stupid attempts to click a selfie.

This man right here is one among the latter trying to click a selfie with a rattlesnake.

Oh yes, you heard it right and in the process got bitten. Now rattlesnake bites are fairly common and thus medical treatment is widely available but still its a very nasty and dangerous business. Don't believe me, take a look.

But things were not like before.

Beware!

Beware!

Though fairly defensive before attacking these snakes find people attracted to them because of the rattling tail instead of repelling of fear. And it's their hemotoxic venom that almost instantly damages tissue and kills blood cells.

Loved this? Spread it out then
