good idea to keep your eyes open if you are out and about

p.s. any good suggestions as to getting snakes off if you get tagged (other than dont get taged in the first place) :lol:

if a snake bites u pour whisky on it and it will let go. or any alcoholic liquid for that matter. whisky is just my preference as id need a drink aswell.

surely alcohol will damage the snake as u would either get some in its mouth or even worse in its eyes!!???

It won't get in the snakes eyes as they're completely covered with a clear scale (brille) like built-in goggles! It will get in its mouth and possibly sting a little, which is what makes it let go. No permanent damage though, unless i guess if it bites you ten times a day and gets through half a bottle!

The thing I find worst about all snake bites is putting the antiseptic on after.. I know its probably fine but I want to be sure.. but thats what hurts the most.

I now have a squirty bottle of vodka on top of my madagasy hogs viv after I got tagged with no one else in the house and went through hell trying to get her off me! :lol:

Frankly if she's willing to bite me, Im willing to squirt her, I doubt the sting from the alcohol is that bad.
