Snake man biten by puffadder – again

‘Nutty’ Natie Swart’s attempt to spend a world record 121 days living with 40 venomous snakes is over after he was biten for a third time.

Swart was biten three times on the right arm by a puffadder on Friday night, confirmed Chameleon Village Reptile and Conservation Park director David Dennis.

“After surviving three bites, the risk is a little bit too much,” said Dennis.

Swart walked into the snake enclosure near Hartbeestport Dam on 15 August last year but was biten by a puffadder just six days later. He spent 27 days in hospital.
