Well I am not sure why this needs to be all hush hush. Hogs while being venomous, they are not dangerous.

Troys post was not misleading or harmful in any way. It was not an allergic reaction so there is no point in mentioning that. That reaction is strictly from the venom. So why call it something else? Troy was bitten, the snake did what they do in order to work its VENOM into the holes it made in Troys finger with its FANGS. The venom entered the blood stream and worked its way up Troys arm. The same as any other venomous snake bite.

Again, that reaction that Troy posted is atypical to allergic reaction and typical to being envenomed.

Can it be compared with a copperhead bite. No. Copper heads are front fanged pit vipers that have cause numerous fatalities and their bites cause extensive tissue damage.

CourtGaverth, not to sound like a jerk, but the more you post the more it becomes clear that you do not have extensive knowledge of allergies or venomous snake bites. That is not really a bad thing in general. Not many people do. However, when you are trying to "prove a point" you should really have knowledge on the subject.

I have kept venomous snakes (crotalids and true African viperids) for many years. I did not believe hogs were venomous. That is until I was pointed to the proper information.
