Hunting for snakes

To survive, people must sometimes do things which under any other circumstances - and would not have thought to do. For example, to hunt for snakes and eat them. It would seem that from these vile, and even often, and poisonous creatures, need to stay away. But in extreme conditions, when a question of life or death, not to prejudice. In this article we will talk about the features of hunting snakes.

Psychologically difficult to restructure, but possible. The classical approach: the snake - is dangerous, we - the victim. But we can approach this situation and vice versa: we are hungry and dangerous snake - the victim. What good is a snake as an object of the hunt? They are found in various natural zones: deserts, steppes and jungles, taiga, mountains. There are snakes on the high seas, but their meat is edible, with rare exceptions. But virtually all land snakes are edible meat. Even a poisonous snake enough to decapitate and meat can be eaten. It is not necessary to touch only especially brightly colored snakes, such as color is not for nothing alarming - they can be poison in the subcutaneous glands, and there they can not.

Important plus snakes, as part of their diet - meat taste much better than it looks holders... not a delicacy (although in Asian countries think otherwise), but being roasted over coals - snake meat even tastes good.

hunting for snakesIn regions such land as wilderness, except for snakes and scorpions - no more sources of animal protein, and hence the energy to fight for survival. That means they have to eat. But in the jungle or taiga, it is quite possible to eat the fruits of plants, berries, etc. since hunting takes more strength, with the same results in terms of calories. Agree that bush cranberry, or a bunch of bananas - do not run away and bite you.

Of course, hunting for snakes - is a dangerous business. Even non-poisonous snake can inflict a painful bite. Of poisonous - and can not speak, their bites are often fatal. The most important rule in hunting for snakes - we must act smoothly and at a safe distance from the snake, not to provoke the attack snakes, and if they provoke, so that it does not reach us.

The task in hunting for snakes is reduced to make a long stick with a fork, press head of the snake to the ground. Then, without giving the snake maneuver (tightly clutching the stick) must be quickly cut off her head with a knife or break it with stone. The head of poisonous snakes, even when separated from the body - is a serious threat. For that reason, it is to bury on the spot. In addition, this measure is necessary to the head of the snake did not attract any predators ever to their camp.
