Snake venom turns human blood solid within minutes, horror video shows

A wild animal expert has captured the effects toxic snake venom has on human blood.

Committed wildlife conservationist Graham ‘Dingo’ Dinkelman runs a popular YouTube page showing off cute and cuddly animals to the big and deadly.

In his most recent video, uploaded only yesterday, the expert mixed his own blood with an African puff adder's venom and the world's most dangerous snake, a taipan's venom, revealing the adverse effects it has on humans after an attack.

Dingo firstly had the snakes bite into separate dishes in order to release their poison.

He then poured a couple of droplets of the taipan's venom into a vial of his own blood before shaking it gently to mix.

Within five minutes, the blood had solidified.

When he turned the capsule upside down the red liquid had clotted and remained at the top of the tube.

The expert said just two drops of a taipan's venom is strong enough to kill 100 men or 250,00 mice.

The puff adder's sample mixed with blood remained a liquid.

However, its venom attacks human blood causing a slow death.

The toxin breaks down your tissue and blood, creating swelling before death.

Dingo said: "More people are killed by puff adders in Africa than any other snake on the entire continent."

After taking the lid off, he said: "Look at that, it looks like jelly.

"All hard like jelly, that's the impact of just a drop of blood."

Since uploading the clip hours ago, some 15,000 people have viewed it.
