VIDEO: Shane Warne bitten by Anaconda in Africa: Legendary spin bowler from Australia, who has never shied away from a bit of adventurism, has suffered a snakebite from an Anaconda after dipping his head into a box full of snakes in a reality TV show.
The 46-year-old Warne was taking part in Network Ten show “I”m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” It was during a task when Warne had to dip his head in a box full of reptiles and a whiplash bite occurred.
“The juvenile anaconda is the one that actually struck Shane,” a Network Ten spokesperson told the news.com.au website. “It”s non-venomous but very aggressive.”
“Anacondas have 100 rear-facing teeth. Being bitten by one is like getting 100 hypodermic needles at once.”
Warne received immediate treatment from medics on the strike area and is safe now. Though he has some small marks from the bite, there will be no permanent scarring.
