Bizzare case last week in Croatia.
Young woman from Holland while walking around on Biokovo with her boyfriend was biiten by ammo in her thumb.
The bite was provoked by her intention to pet the little cute snake as she told to emergency crew while rescuing :)
Moment of bite was acctualy recorded by her boyfriend.

Article about the case in croatian Jutarnji list newspaper

Having seen the size of the viper and the type of the bite, I think this bite will have no more consequences than a mosquito bite... :lol:

Juvenile specimen. By medical report, arm was swelled below elbow. But no antiviperine was prescribed, that was not necessary.

But regariding size, imagine this level of stupidity with any of echis species with same 'cute' size.
