Most rattlesnake bites contain hemotoxic elements which damage tissue and affect the circulatory system by destroying blood cells, skin tissues and causing internal hemorrhaging. Rattlesnake venom also contains neurotoxic components which immobilize the nervous system, affecting the victim’s breathing, sometimes stopping it. Most rattlesnakes have venom composed primarily of hemotoxic properties. Baby rattlesnakes and the Mojave rattler are the exception.
The man was in Polk County Florida when he saw the snake. He and his family were out skeet shooting when his grandchildren ran screaming to him. Now, the man had been around snakes his entire life, and has handled them for a long time. This time, he was unsafe. The snake was likely in distress from the gunshot, and turned and bit him quickly.
He took two steps then passed out. After the bite, Roddenberry lost consciousness after taking a few steps, “that’s about the last thing I remember,” he said.
“In less than a minute he started slobbering, and rolling his eyes in the back of his head, sweating and shaking,” said his wife Racquel.
“God is amazing.” said his wife, Racquel Roddenberry.
The couple is thankful for the prayers, and they credit the first responders for saving him.
He said while he was unconscious he did see God. He saw a way out, but refused to take it. Have you ever experienced a snake bite?
