According to the CDC, around 7,000 to 8,000 people get bitten by a venomous snake in America each year. Of these, only five will die. Now, that number may seem very small to you but experts all agree that this figure would be much higher if these people did not seek immediate medical care. But what do you do if you’re bitten in a survival situation and don’t have access to medical help? (h/t to PreppersWill.com)
Avoid a snake bite with these tips:
If, after all you’ve done, you still managed to get bitten, follow these steps:
The first step in treating a snake bite is knowing what type of snake bit you. In North America, there are only four kinds you need to worry about: the coral snake, rattlesnake, copperhead, and cottonmouth.
Each of these snakes has their own distinctive markings and characteristics that you should become familiar with.
Red Touch Yellow — Kills a Fellow
Red Touch Black — Venom Lack
Yellow Touches Red — Soon You’ll Be Dead
Red Touches Black — Friend of Jack
Coral snakes are some of the most easily identifiable snakes due to their bright color, but non-venomous king snakes bear a striking resemblance to their deadly cousins. One of the easiest ways to tell them apart is to look at their heads. If the snake that bit you has a black snout, it’s the venomous coral snake.
As their name suggests, rattle snakes are noisy. They hiss and shake their rattles rapidly as a warning before they attack.
Cottonmouths have a distinctive triangular head and a dark band that runs through their eyes and body. These snakes are more commonly found in swamps and rivers.
These snakes are normally chestnut in color and have rich, brown crossbands. They are usually found along rocky areas and can be very hard to see, as they blend in very well among the foliage.
