kg4kpg I almost got bit once. At a leadership school for the army. Doing some field exercises (ambushes). I got into a hiding place, had an hour to kill before the enemy platoon showed up, sat down and went to lean back on my hands. Looked down and less than an inch below my han was a coiled rattlesnake. Damn think was sleeping or just blonde. It didn't move until I got away, grabbed a stick and poked at it a little. It yawned and crawled away. The creepy chills camp over me, I was an inch away from the think, 20 miles from the base or a hospital. Oh the memories.

People very rarely die of rattle snake bites, most would survive without treatment at all.

Depends on the reaction of the venom, and as the snake was of a decent size, 10 isn't a lot. I've seen people on AnimalPlanet need like 20-30 from a baby snake's bite.

Rattlesnake bites Mrs. America contestant

A Mrs. America contestant spent about 15 hours in a hospital after being bitten by a rattlesnake at a Tucson hotel.

Christina Ryan plans to continue despite suffering the venomous bite.

Ryan, who is representing Tennessee in the event being held at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, was heading down a staircase to a rehearsal at about 9 a.m. Sunday when she saw a spider in her path.





Having been bitten by a venomous brown recluse spider as a child, she knew to avoid the creature.

While avoiding the spider, she unknowingly stepped near a rattlesnake that bit her on the foot, she said.

"I startled it doing my little spider dance, and he bit me," she said. "As soon as it bit me I knew it was a rattlesnake."

The snake, 8 to 10 inches long, left a fang stuck in her foot above her toe.

She was taken to Tucson Medical Center where she received 10 vials of antivenin - produced in Tennessee, she noted - and spent the night in the intensive care unit.

"The pain was the worst pain I have ever had, worse than childbirth. It was horrifically bad," she said. "It was like someone stabbed a knife in my foot, and kept stabbing it in over and over again."

The poison progressed to her ankle before the antivenin took effect, she said.

Ryan, an event planner from Franklin, Tenn., was released from the hospital Monday.

"I had an amazing recovery," she said. "Most people with bites are in the hospital several days."

Mrs. America event interviews are slated for Saturday, with preliminary competition Sunday and the finals Sept. 5.

Ryan has remained upbeat, resting her foot and preparing for the pageant. She is eager to represent Tennessee in the contest.

"I'm trying to get ready to walk in heels on Sunday without limping," she said. "I can now add fear of snakes to fear of spiders."
Damn things can be anywhere. When I was working in California, I found one inside the wheel of a congear I was hooking up, I almost grabbed it before it rattled.
