Deadly Snake Bites Man on Penis

Sometimes, even a writer can't make up better tales than the ones that happen in real life. Read this amazing story here. PLEASE NOTE: The snake pictured is not the same species as the snake featured in the story.

TIDBIT: I had a pet snake many years ago. A ball python named Monty (Of course). Monty was not only gorgeous, but a perfect gentleman. He never bit me, so all snakes are not as naughty as this one. The lesson here isn't that snakes are bad, but that men need to proceed with caution when they unzip in the great outdoors. (I told this story to my husband and he wasn't as taken with it as I am. Come on now, fellows, where's your sense of humor?")
