They ended up euthanizing the wrong animal, the snake was the smart one here. This gene pool could've used a little thinning.

A teen from Wimauma, Florida has been hospitalized at Tampa General Hospital after an incident over the weekend where he was bitten by a snake. On Saturday evening, 18-year-old Austin Lane Hatfield was bitten on the face by a cottonmouth snake he kept in a pillowcase on his bed at home.

According to TBO, the man was bitten on the lip by the snake, also known as a water moccasin, and brought to the hospital by his family.

As it goes, Hatfield had captured the snake recently and had it inside of a pillowcase in his room at home. He kept the pillowcase on his bed and it was still there when he tried to go to sleep around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday night.

It was then that Hatfield felt the cottonmouth snake slither out of the pillow and across his stomach. When Hatfield tried to recapture it, the snake struck and ended up bitting him on the lip.

WFLA reported that the snake ended up being euthanized and brought over to Tampa General Hospital. While there, the snake is going to be used for identification purposes.

Mine is 10 inches long......

I think you are inaccurately misrepresenting information on here by not telling our fellow VJers what you are referring to. Having an attention span of 10 sec is nothing to brag about.

That's an amazing feat. Back when we were in high school....
