Seriously? A hospital visit for a python bite? It’s usually no worse than being bitten by a cat. Was the man elderly or suffering some kind of pre existing health issue? Calling an ambulance seems a bit dramatic to say the least!!. I’ve handled a few angry pythons and been bitten several times and never needed medical help. There must be more to this story or someone needs to toughen up 😂😂😂

Bahaha a hospital visit!! Really?. I was unawear that python bites require anti venom. Hehe
