JRP Posted March 9, 2016 Report Share Posted March 9, 2016 Its a bit early for the SW area rattlesnakes to be waking up. But some unusually high temps have a few of them out looking for an early spring meal. One unlucky & uninformed RV'er who was in AZ to watch some spring training games, stuck his arm where he shouldn't have and got a good bite from a rattler. Shortly after the bite, his blood pressure dropped so low, that he passed out and hit his head on a sharp edge. They got him to the local hospital in time to administer anti venom and treat his head gash. Keep in mind we share the desert with some unfriendly creatures. Warm spring weather brings the rattlers out of their winter dens and they're hungry & aggressive. I haven't seen any over here in NM yet, but we're still a bit cooler than Phx area. < http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/southwest-valley/2016/03/07/arizona-spring-training-fan-bitten-rattlesnake/81452866/ > Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
