What viper venom does to human blood
Reader Phssthpok left a comment on yesterday's post about the German snake-charmer killed by a French Aspic viper. He provided the link to this short video clip, showing what adder venom does to human blood. I found it fascinating. I can't embed it here, thanks to YouTube's age restrictions, so you'll have to go to the link to watch it. Recommended.
Thanks, Phssthpok! Very useful information. (BTW, did anyone ever tell you your screen name might sound a bit like an angry viper hissing, then taking a bite? Just listen: Phssth . . . POK!)
