A massasauga rattlesnake housed at the Toronto Zoo bit a keeper as the 45-year-old was feeding the slithery snake. The worker was taken to hospital in serious condition and administered with anti-venom serum. In a statement, the zoo said the worker was expected to make a complete recovery.
The zoo offers these snake safety tips. Importantly, if you’re bitten, don’t panic and get to a hospital immediately.
