Snake snags man in Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A 41-year-old man vis­it­ing Port Dou­glas from Melbourne has fig­ured out the hard way why you shouldn’t take pho­tos in the dark. The man got be­tween na­ture when he was try­ing to take a photo of a green tree frog. He felt a painful sen­sa­tion on his foot and re­alised he was bit­ten by a snake. Am­bu­lance at­tended the scene and trans­ported the man to Moss­man Hos­pi­tal but he was soon trans­ferred to Cairns for reg­u­lar blood tests. The species of snake is un­known but it’s be­lieved to be non-ven­omous.
