Surviving a Snakebite

W.C. Fields once said, “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite, and furthermore, always carry a snake.” Here is more sensible advice from the remarkable Thea Litschka-Koen, who lives in Swaziland and saves both mambas from people and people from mambas (find out more about her here and here). The tips are taken from an article Litschka-Koen wrote for BBC Knowledge magazine and are used with permission. The article is now filed under Resources for Mamba Point.
