A black mamba's venom is so lethal that even after the snake is dead, its venom can still kill you.

Damn i am feeling unsafe while looking this video. Good luck that boy survived, and he learned one important lesson out of this.

@legions

Like any substance, i wonder if this venom affect all the people in different way ( i mean, death is final outcome but time needed for poison to take over is different for everyone and in case of this boy it was a matter of minutes while older people should have more time for medical treatment alto it still depends of the victims condition, health and many more factors )

That ranger surely had good body shape and condition cuz he need that to be able to do that kind of work.

Which brings me to other question :)

If victim is athlete with perfect body shape and everything then the venom could transfer trough his blood faster and as result kill him faster then some guy with bad blood circulation and body shape?

oh, confused :)

Thank goodness for anti-venom. It must be hard living in a country with deadly snakes.
