A 26-year-old snake farm manager died doing what he loved
most when he was bitten by a black mamba.The snake’s fang punctured Ryan Soobramany’s finger while he
was trying to extract its venom on Saturday, a statement from his employers at
African Reptiles and Venom stated.”He had a severe anaphylactic reaction from the mamba
venom. His untimely demise was not due to the bite but as a result of
anaphylaxis.”Johan Marais, a herpetologist at the African Snakebite
Institute, explained that it usually took between three and 16 hours to die
from a black mamba snakebite.”You need to get to hospital as quickly as possible
because black mambas have neurotoxic venom, which affects the breathing,”
Marais said.”At the hospital, you will receive assisted breathing.
They will put you on a ventilator and use CPR to revive you. Ryan was exposed
to venom all the time. What’s strange here, is that he did not die from the
venom. His body went into shock or anaphylaxis.”Symptoms include a numbness of the lips, slurred speech and
progressive weakness. Large quantities of antivenom are required to treat the
snake bite.The black mamba is known to be the largest venomous snake in
Africa and grows to the maximum length of 4.5m.According to the African Snakebite Institute website, the
black mamba has a reputation for being shy, but will not hesitate to strike
repeatedly if threatened.Soobramany’s fiancé Jacquelyn Sewcheran took to social media
to express her grief.”You always wanted to make an impact in the world my
love. Look at what you have done – social media is going crazy with your heroism
and they should,” she wrote.”You were the most amazing person I’ve ever known. I
have no words to describe you, no words to say because nothing will ever be
enough.”SOURCE: NEWS24
