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.
Disclaimer: Viewer discretion advised, disturbing images ahead.
With a lot of snakes out there, it's common among the snake bites and which in itself is not-so-common.
What he did was try and take a selfie with a dangerous creature.
And by common, am not talking about selfie cases but the bites. You can clearly see that his tissues have been badly damaged.
The cost of the dangerous selfie. And to show you how dangerous it could be, let me present to you yet another case.
Damaged tissue is clearly visible on his palm and the damaged skin is the part not there. It took ten operations and a month just to remove the damaged tissue.
This picture after about five grafting operations. Till then the hand was cover by nets held by rubber bands.
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.
