Man bites snake to death in India

A 35-year-old railway worker bit a snake that had attacked him, resulting in the snake’s death in Bihar, India.

The man was working in a forested region near the city of Nawada in Bihar, India when the incident occurred on Tuesday evening.

The reptile suddenly attacked him when he went to sleep. He reacted by rapidly seizing the snake and biting it back twice, killing the creature.

In some parts of India, there is a superstition that biting a snake transfers the venom back to the reptile.

“In my village, there’s a belief that if a snake bites you, you must bite it back twice to neutralize the venom,” the man said.

After the bite, he was rushed to the hospital by his colleagues.

He was kept overnight and he had been given antivenom. He was discharged from the hospital the next day.

India is home to a diverse range of snake species, including several that are highly venomous.

Some of the country’s most dangerous snakes include the India cobra (also known as the spectacled cobra), the common krait, the Russell’s viper, and the saw-scaled viper.
