A Rattlesnake send’s a man to ER with a kiss of death

Published

A man in the US was bitten on his tongue by a rattlesnake he was trying to kiss, media reports said today.

Ron Reinold was airlifted to a hospital in Florida’s Putnam County in a critical condition after the incident happened on Tuesday.

His neighbors said that he was trying to kiss the rattlesnake when it bit him on the tongue, Action News Jax reported.

Mr. Reinold’s family said he was doing much better and expected to survive, the report said.

His neighbor Charles Goff found the snake on Monday night and put it in a tank.

A day later Mr. Reinold started playing with the snake and made his ill-judged move, the report said.


“The next morning before I got up, they were playing with the snake. One boy said, ‘I’m going to kiss it in the mouth,’ and the snake bit him in the face,” Mr. Goff was quoted as saying by the report.

Mr. Goff said Mr. Reinold and another man were being irresponsible by playing with the snake, the report said.

“Ron was just acting silly. I guess he said he could kiss the devil and get away with it, but evidently he didn’t,” Goff said, adding that the neighbors left the snake after it bit.

“So the snake is still out there running around somewhere,” he added.

Rattlesnakes, a group of venomous snakes that produce very strong hemotoxic venom, are used for hunting and defense against predators. Rattlesnake bites are often fatal for humans if not treated immediately.

Photographer Tariq Zaïdi, who lives in London, took pictures of the hairstyles of the isolated tribes in the countryside of Angola.

Zaidi obtained the photos during his tour of the southern African country in search of “lost tribes.”

Through his footage, the photographer sought to show the lifestyles and customs of people living in these isolated rural communities.

There are prominent features in the images are the hats and exotic hairstyles adopted by women and how they represent their status within their groups.

Zaidi found that women are very proud of the hairstyles and traditional clothes they wear.

Hairstyles can take hours to get to the final look because of the many details they include, including hair curls with straw, and goat-like hair with some other additions to decorate.

The rapid development of Angola thanks to oil has raised many fears that isolated tribal communities are at risk of vanishing.

Tariq Zaïdi

Tribes and different ethnic groups tend to gather in certain areas of the country, preserving all their customs, languages and history.

There are in Angola more than 90 different ethnic groups, located on the border with Namibia and Botswana from the south and east of Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north.

Among the communities that appeared in the images: Hemba, Mwila, Mukoroka and the Mukos tribes.
