Hizi habari kutoka Australia zinashitua kinamna yake! Nyoka alimuuma jamaa aliyekuwa anajisitili porini. Sasa sijui nyoka huyo alifikiri nini kichwani mwake...duuh, ni bora tu hata angemng'ata dole gumba la mguuni..... Mimi nadhani saa nyingine wanyama wengine huwa wako overly defensive sana bana kuona wameingiliwa kwenye anga zao na wapinzani!

Deadly brown snake bites man's penis
May 29, 2008 07:03am
A ROADSIDE toilet stop ended in pain, embarrassment and almost death for a tourist when a highly venomous snake bit the end of his penis.
The deadly brown snake slithered between his legs and lunged at his manhood as he crouched on a roadside near Laura, 300km northwest of Cairns, about a month ago.
Details of the incident only came to light yesterday after they were confirmed by a paramedic, cairns.com.au reports today.
"It certainly had a swipe at him," an ambulance spokesman said yesterday.
"But it didnt envenomate him.
"As it came through it must have got a bit of a shock."
The snake beat a hasty retreat, leaving its victim with a scratch, vomiting and abdomen pain.
Emergency workers raced to the scene to treat the man.
The wound was wrapped in plastic in case poison had penetrated the skin but medical staff gave the man the all-clear after conducting tests.
He was taken to Cooktown Hospital where he spent a night recovering.
The ambulance spokesman described him as "lucky", given his near encounter with one of Australias most poisonous snakes.
"I think he was a bit shocked and embarrassed," he said.
