Hi! My name is Teja and I'm a snake attack survivor.
Here below is my story;
It all happened on a fine sunday morning near whitestone lake in Parry Sound. I went to check up on my fishing rod poised on the deck when I heard a swooshing noise in bush, the curious tom that I am, I decided to look and what I found marked me for life.
There it was, the víbora de cascabel from the rattlesnake family; the Black Massasauga, one of the most venomous vipers in north america and it was looking at me straight in the eyes. It's head was all perked up and end of it's tail shaking ready to strike. It only took splits seconds for me to react while facing death in the eyes. The snake striked first but in that moment I knew what to do, I was preparing for this my entire life. Not a shred of fear, my entire body reacted as my survival instincts kicked in, they were far greater than what the snake expected. I jumped back as far as any brown man has ever jumped and bolted my way out of there, leaving it without no further option than to abandon it's prey.
As I rushed to the stairs, I carried with me, two of my other friends that were going towards the direction of the threat, thus saving their lives.
It's moments like these that really redefines what a man really is and that man, is a survivor!
To those out there that went through a similar experience; I wanted to say that you are not alone and that I'm with you! #livestrong 👊🏾
