Tim Friede from Wisconsin is best known as the “Venom Man” as he is the only person in the world who practices this life-threatening act. Friede hadn’t received any training in snake handling but still he manages to get bitten by the World’s venomous snakes. It has been proved that ejecting venom by animals is a defense mechanism to save them from danger.
Such bizarre scientific experimentations have been practiced in the past as well. But this venom man carries out his experiment without any medical care or laboratory assistance. Friede has been doing this for more than a decade. Scroll down to know the reason.
Dr. Brian Hanley, a microbiologist from the University of California is assisting and funding Friede in his experiments. Both Friede and Hanley have established the company named Butterfly Sciences to carry out the experiments. Dr. Hanley explained, “Arguing with Tim’s results-it’s like arguing the sky is blue. It needs work, but it’s real, and it fits what we know about immunology. There’s no conflict here.”
