A man claims he’s become immune to snake venom.

Tim Friede insists he’s been bitten by deadly serpents, including a water cobra and a black mamba ? whose venom would usually kill someone within 20 minutes ? on 100 occasions, and now hopes he can help to develop antivenoms to save people.

The unemployed factory worker has posted images of himself being bitten by such serpents in a bid to prove to people he can withstand their venom. While Tim hasn’t died after being bitten by snakes, he has suffered from anaphylaxis, which can cause death through breathing difficulties and serious swelling. -Bang Showbiz Share your thoughts:
