Police seized over 100 “dangerous” snakes from a woman’s house after she was injured and needed medical attention from a rattlesnake bite.
The 35-year-old woman in Germany was injured after one of her snakes struck and bit her. The woman reportedly drove to a local hospital for treatment after her finger was bitten. Her condition continued to get worse, and doctors were concerned about her chance of survival. She was then transferred to a larger hospital in a nearby city, Hanover, where a counter serum was delivered from the Tropical Institute in Hamburg.
Rattlesnakes are venomous vipers, and they get their name from a unique “rattle” at the end of their tail that makes a noise when it snakes. A bite from one of these snakes can be fatal, but death is uncommon since many places have antivenom widely available.

According to police, the woman keeps 70-80 snakes in her apartment. Police say they found more than 110 snakes in the rest of the yard. They found constrictors, poisonous snakes, and many more, which were not in proper living conditions.
The animals were confiscated, and the local environmental authorities and veterinary offices are helping out with the snakes and getting them into proper care. Police will investigate the regulations that the owner has broken for housing these 110 snakes.
Snakes should never be kept as pets. If you want an animal, adopt one in need, and only if you can properly care for them! Check out What to Do When You Encounter a Snake!
