A photo of a camouflaged snake went viral on Twitter because it's difficult to spot the snake in sight.
The snake is a copper head, a type of snake that is extremely venomous.
If you are bitten by a snake, do not suck up the venom.
Snakes have a devious habit of hiding in sight. Take, for example, this photo of a slippery reptile that a Twitter user named @ SssnakeySci - a Ph.D. Student studying pythons, boas, and pit vipers - published a few years ago but has since surfaced and gone viral.
Can you see the snake camouflaged in the branches and leaves?
How about now
The snake is actually in the center of the photo:
People were pretty worried about this crazy disguise, especially since the snake was a copper head that is extremely venomous.
Just so you know if you are bitten by one of these snakes, don't try to suck the venom out. Poison combines with blood fairly instantly; It begins to spread in the bloodstream and is not extracted sufficiently through suction. If you accidentally ingest the poison, you can poison yourself.
Instead, whenever you get something, call 911 and National Poison Control (1-800-222-1222) first. Let medical professionals know what the snake looked like and they can find the right antidote to treat you with. But stay calm: the faster your heart rate is, the faster the toxin will spread in your bloodstream. While you wait for the doctors or an ambulance to arrive, relax and let the wound bleed to let the poison ooze out.
