Snake bites may have an unusual cure: the blood of the Louisiana alligator.
A new study has found that elements of alligator blood can counteract the deadly effects of snake venom.
“Copperhead and cottonmouth snakes have been found in the bellies of alligators,” said John Finger, a biologist at Auburn University in Alabama and lead author of the study. “From that we inferred that they may have the ability to eat venomous prey without getting hurt by it.”
Finger tested eastern copperhead venom, which contains toxins that damage tissue and prevent blood from clotting, on blood extracted from mice and alligators from Cameron Parish.
