This is possibly one of the worst case scenarios for a man on a safari in South Africa with his penis being bitten.

A 47 year old Dutchman while on vacation in South Africa went to a bathroom and let’s just say the snake bit more than it could chew. The South African quotes a report from Urology case reports where the unnamed man was sitting on a toilet seat when a snake hit and bit his genitals.

The snake species has been identified as the snouted cobra (Naja annulifera) and waited three long hours to be transported by helicopter to the nearest trauma center, 350 kilometers away.

The man reportedly felt a burning sensation in his genitals and pain that ran through his groin to his side, upper chest and abdomen. He also reportedly vomited but had no neurological symptoms.
