News Item on Grieg Fry
« on: August 25, 2015, 08:25:19 AM »
Worth a read.  For me, it's good to know that if I am tagged by one of my adders, I am likely to be in for a "euphoric" and "out-of-body" experience!

Had a chuckle reading that one. Know a few people that have been tagged by Adders and all would say that the feeling is far from euphoric. Might have taken a bit of poetic license there for book sales.

Yeah.  I also know a couple who have ended up in hospital thanks to adder bites and none described the experience in those terms.  Maybe is a locality-specific thing?  ;)

Think he might be confused as a result of all those envenomations. Might be mistaking that experience with a lick of the Colorado River Toad.
