From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Snakebite EP. For the album, see Mungo Jerry. Snakebites in Africa are most common in the sub-Saharan countries scorpion stings are more common in Northern Africa , and typically occur during the rainy season when snakes are more active.
Because there is no reliable reporting system in place and because most victims never report their injury to health care facilities, these numbers are uncertain. In Bangladesh , the incidence of snakebites is very high, like other tropical countries of Southeast Asia. Here most snakebite victims dwelling in rural areas are farmers, fishermen, and hunters and also there are a high number of snakebite occurrences that happened at their homes as most of the snakes are nocturnal animals and poor people have the practice of sleeping on the floor.
Nonetheless, there are approximately 80 species of snakes found in Bangladesh ; among them only few are venomous. These are cobra, krait, Russell's viper, sawscaled viper, green snakes, and sea snakes. On the Indian subcontinent , almost all snakebite deaths have traditionally been attributed to the Big Four , consisting of the Russell's viper , Indian cobra , saw-scaled viper , and the common krait.
However, studies have shown that the hump-nosed viper , previously considered essentially harmless and misidentified as the saw-scaled viper, is capable of delivering a fatal bite.
Reports of large man-eating pythons are common in Southeast Asia, although the threat is typically exaggerated. However, in the Philippines , more than a quarter of Aeta men a modern forest-dwelling hunter-gatherer group have reported surviving a reticulated python attack. Throughout Western Asia , the species responsible for the majority of bites tend to be more venomous than European snakes, but deaths are infrequent.
Studies estimate that perhaps fatal bites occur each year. The vast majority of venomous snakebites in Australasia occur in the Australasian realm. In the Oceanian realm , only Micronesia and Tonga , where at least 10 envenomations occur annually, face an appreciable burden of snakebite.
In Australia , there are many more annual cases of spiderbite and jellyfish envenomation than snakebite; however, when considering the number of fatal cases, snakebite is the most serious type of envenoming.
The brown snakes , death adders , mulga snakes , taipans , and tiger snakes are the five groups that inflict virtually all reported snakebites, although copperheads , rough-scaled snakes , and members of the genus Hoplocephalus are also occasionally involved in bites. In Northern Australia , sea snakes are common and occasionally inflict bites, although far less frequently than terrestrial snakes. The brown snakes are not present on these islands.
Despite the fact that many Australian snakes have unusually potent venom, wide access to antivenom, which is available for all dangerous species,  has made deaths exceedingly rare. It is believed that up to 1, definite or suspected snakebites occur in Australia each year, of which about are serious enough to warrant antivenom therapy. In Europe, nearly all of the snakes responsible for venomous bites belong to the viper family, and of these, the coastal viper , nose-horned viper , asp viper , and Lataste's viper inflict the majority of bites.
Even in Europe, measurement of the prevalence and mortality due to venomous snakebite is challenging, and most figures are likely underestimates. The most detailed data on mortality are from France, where 36 people died from venomous snakebite between and , an annual mortality of 0.
Bites from captive venomous snakes to a very specific and limited population of amateur herpetoculturists, zookeepers, and researchers are an issue in Europe,   challenging hospital workers with unexpected situations. Of the known indigenous snake species in North America, only 20 are venomous to human beings, all belonging to the families Viperidae and Elapidae. The national average incidence of venomous snake bites in the United States is roughly 4 bites per , persons,  and about 5 deaths per year total 1 death per 65 million people.
Mexico is estimated to have at least 28, snake envenomings annually, although only a small number of these lead to death. Of these, Bothrops asper is the most important species, partly because it is abundant in lowland areas and partly because it is frequently found in agricultural and pastoral areas where humans work.
Colubrid species found in Central America only cause mild to moderate envenomation in healthy adults, and most of these bites have occurred in humans handling the snakes. In the Neotropics , the lance-headed vipers inflict the majority of fatal bites, although of the many known species, only two, the common lancehead and terciopelo , are responsible for most fatalities.
