SCReptiles, That is one nasty bite, from what I can see its already starting to rot...errr whats it called...necrosis?
Yes, its called necrosis and its associated with all North American pit vipers. No, that wasn’t me, thanks God. =) That hand and bite belong to Bret Welch of TX. You can read the entire account of the bite, I will provide the link below. I suggest anyone keeping hots for field herping hots take a few minutes to read this.
