On November 12, Uncle Chen, 58, of Yongjia County, Wenzhou, saw a cobra killed by a car on the road. According to Uncle Chen, cobra weighs about 3 jin. Seeing that it cant move, it wants to take it home for cooking. Chen Junbiao, director of Wenzhou snake Research Institute, told surging news on the 15th that when he arrived home, uncle cut off the snakes head and cut it into small pieces. About 15 minutes later, he prepared to throw the snakes head out of the house with a pair of pliers. Just when he turned the snakes head, the cobras eyes suddenly opened, and venom was spewed out of his mouth and directed directly at his left eye.
Chen Junbiao told the surging news that Uncle Chen immediately suffered from pain in his left eye, which had no effect when he washed it with clear water. Then his right eye began to hurt. His eyes were red and swollen when he went to see the doctor. Medical staff injected anti naja atra Venom Serum, took orally traditional Chinese medicine, washed and other treatment measures, and his condition gradually improved. He left hospital on the 14th.
Cobra venom is very toxic. If the treatment is not timely, the patients eyes may be blind. Chen Junbiao said that although the Viper was beheaded, it still has the ability to respond. The Institute will receive the cases of bitten by the cut off head every year, but it is the first time that the venom is ejected. He reminded us to stay away from cobras, Bungarus and other venomous snakes, even if it seems dead, do not touch them easily.
