Wow, a rattler in WV...I have never seen one east of the Mississippi.

There's a "snake farm" in Bangkok where they collect venom by "milking" the snakes, which is then used to prepare the vaccines that are kept in refrigerators in hospitals and zoos all over the world.  You can watch them do this...it's worth a visit if you are ever in Bangkok. 

If I'm in Thailand, I have other things to do.   :)
