The Most Dangerous Snake In the World

   NAME:
    "Expecteria Trouserius" (Trouser Snake)
   
   LOCATION:
    Throughout the world
   
   DESCRIPTION:
    One-eyed, with mushroom-shaped head (other types come with
      extralayers of skin).
    Varying from pink to black. 
    Fang-less with a highly venomous spit.  (Spit can reach distances up
      to 2-3 feet)
   
   Size varies from 3 to 12 inches, depending on its mood & sub-species.
   
   SYMPTOMS: 
   This snake attacks mainly women in the lower front abdomen, resulting
   in an inconspicuous bump.  Then a severe swelling followed by
   excruciating pain after nine months.  The attack is not usually fatal.
   
   Beware:
    It has been known to attack men in the rear lower abdomen!
   
   HABITAT:
    Usually found in bedrooms, but has been known to appear in the most
    unusual places.
   
   ANTIDOTE: 
   Various types of vaccine available for women.   However, once the venom
   is injected into the body only drastic measures will ensure complete
   recovery.  There is no known antidote for men.

 WHAT TO DO WHEN ATTACKED
   
   TOURNIQUET:
    Do not apply a tourniquet as the venom is too deep in the body to 
    be affected.
   
   CUTTING THE WOUND: 
   This would be completely unnecessary and ineffective as the bleeding 
   will stop after a few weeks anyhow.
   
   SUCKING THE WOUND:
    This method is the most popular with the victim, but so far has not 
    been reported to have led to any success.
  
   SEARCHING FOR ANTI-VENOM: 
   
   1. Place four fingers of the right hand around the neck of the reptile, 
    with the thumb in the front.
   
   2. Grip firmly and move the hand in an upwards and downwards motion.
   
   3. This will result in the snake becoming highly aggressive, very 
     rigid and start spitting.  The time taken for this milking process
     depends entirely on the milker and the last time the snake attacked. 

   4. Once milked, the snake should be harmless for about 20 minutes. 
   
   CONCLUSION: 
    This snake, although it is very aggressive and active, is not 
    necessarily a vermin, and treated with the right respect, makes a 
    wonderful pet.
