The reality of a snake bite is that when there are no resources and knowledge of species and a snakes identity is not well understood.

It can be hard to see the true effects and impacts of human interaction with venomous snake species. This is an account of my personal attempt to educate and bring awareness to the African community members about venomous snake bite prevention and first aid treatment within a village.

The little girl was attacked by a dangerous snake called a Forest Cobra and bit - luckily only her finger was amputated. The venom of this cobra bite result in severe neurotoxicity. This venomous species of snake can be highly dangerous due to the quantity of venom it can inject in a single bite or strike and its aggressive nature when defending. Death can occur rapidly, within 30 to 120 minutes in severe cases of snake envenomation.
The last snake is a Black Mamba, one of the world's deadliest snakes, and my attempt at teaching how to minimize the snakes venom damage to a person. Some viewers may find this footage distressing, but this is the reality of dangerous snake bites in rural Africa.
