Have you ever been tempted to snap a selfie with a rattlesnake? Of course you haven’t, because you’re a sensible person, and you realize that rattlers don’t photograph well.
Not to mention that they absolutely hate social media. It’s a fact. I read it on Wikipedia.
Unfortunately, not everyone got the memo, and on Monday, a man from Lake Elsinore, CA decided to wrangle himself up a co-star for his now world-famous selfie with a rattlesnake. Sadly, the photo turned out a little grainy, but you can clearly see Alex Gomez, 36, with a four-foot rattlesnake wrapped around his neck.
What could possibly go wrong?
Please don’t take selfies with rattlesnakes. But if the idea is just irresistible to you, take a look a previous post I wrote called, Snake Bite Treatment and Prevention When You’re on the Trail.
