I was bitten by a rock rattlesnake (lepidus) on the finger, only one fang hit me, the other was just off the finger. I had a drop of blood telling me that it punctured. Other than some tingling up my hand and arm, nothing happened. Dry bite I assume? I did go to the emergency room in case, but since no symptoms manifested (had been 2 hours by then), they sent me home.

An old herper from back in the day showed me a hognose that bit him on the ankle. He did not pull the snake off right away, and it chewed down far enough to get the fangs in. This guy's ankle swelled up pretty big for almost 2 days, then returned to normal. I saw a pic of the swelling.

In conclusion, I'd rather have that lepidus bite than the hog bite, lol.
