What to do if you encounter a snake on a mountain hike or on a trail run! ?

更新日:

I've been running a mountain for two years, but I've been with him about twice.

I hate himEven if you just look at the photo, it looks like goose bumps, but if it's actually there, you'll scream.

Yes, he is a snake.

The appearance is grotesque and the movement is unpleasant.

So I used to do mountain climbing in winter when there aren't any, but I have to do it in the summer because I lose my strength when I rest.

I try to run in the summer in a mountain where I don't meet him as much as possible, but it's a fairly well-maintained mountain, but I met him during training a few days ago.

The appearance is grotesque and the movement is unpleasant.

So I used to do mountain climbing in winter when there aren't any, but I have to do it in the summer because I lose my strength when I rest.

I try to run in the summer in a mountain where I don't meet him as much as possible, but it's a fairly well-maintained mountain, but I met him during training a few days ago.

He usually lay on a mountain path where humans walk and didn't move at all, so he knew that a few bars were "a piece of stick had fallen", but he seemed to be glowing black 1m in front. This is not a stick," and suddenly stopped.

At such times, why do humans have the double confirmation of reconfirmation?

Then he looked at him carefully! !!I made a weird scream called "Ohhhhhhh".

A few meters back, he picked up a stick and threw it away.

However, if it was running as it was, it might have been stepped on or bitten.

Scary~~~~~~

So, I want to continue Yamabashi in the future, so while investigating his ecology etc., there is a method that does not hit him, a way to manage to escape if it does, and a worst case I will try to summarize how to deal with it.

●How to avoid becoming

In that case, it would be a story to go to the mountain, but this time it is a prerequisite to go, so I would like to ask you to do so.

If you don't want to meet them, you should understand the snake's habit.

Snakes have a habit of preferring humid places, so be careful about grass on the water.Please note that there are revisions to make nests in narrow places such as under the fallen leaves in the mountains and in the gaps in the stone walls.
However, in my experience, I've seen it in various places, such as on the lawn, swimming in the river, and in the gaps between buildings.

If that happens, the snake will be everywhere and there will be no breaks, so if you squeeze it in the mountains to some extent, be careful about humid grass and fallen leaves.Also, it is useless if you don't put stones or gaps in the stairs.

● Preventive measures to prevent misunderstanding

Next, even if you are careful, there may be grass in the immediate vicinity on mountain roads.

In such a case, it seems good to hit the ground with a stick or pole and proceed.

A snake is also afraid of humans, and it senses vibrations on the ground and runs by itself.

But what if you hit the snake with that stick! ?

It seems that I just have to pray that they will escape.

● What would you do if you met?

If you come across this, you'll have to get him to escape by throwing a stick from a distance like me this time.

● What would you do if you were bitten?

It would be nice if it wasn't poisonous like a python, but if it's a viper, it'll panic.

In my living area, which is mostly in the Kanto region, the viper is "mamushi" or "Yamatagashi".

In reality, it would be nice to look at the photos and recognize them, but just looking at the photos makes me feel uncomfortable.

I will write the identification in sentences.

"Mamushi"

Overall length is 45 to 80 cm, overall body is thick and body is short, top is triangular when viewed from above, body color is light brown with eye gaze beside eyes, elliptical spots on body It is included.

[What happens if you get bitten?]
20 to 30 minutes after being bitten, the area around the wound swells with severe pain and bleeding.
After 1 to 2 hours, symptoms such as subcutaneous bleeding, blistering, swelling of lymph nodes, fever and dizziness may occur.

If you get bitten, go to the hospital and have your serum hit.Serum administration is recommended within 6 hours after being bitten.

Yamatagashi”

The total length is 60 to 120 cm, and it has distinctive large eyes and a slender head.The body color varies greatly depending on the area and individual living.It is difficult to discriminate because reddish-brown ground color has a black mottled pattern or no pattern, and there are also black and blue patterns.

[What happens if you get bitten?]

Unlike the pit viper, the anterior teeth do not have poisonous teeth on the anterior teeth and are on the posterior teeth of the upper jaw, so it seems that there are times when it could not be known that they were viper snakes, even reaching the posterior teeth.However, the strength of the poison is stronger than that of pit viper, and when bitten, it causes hemorrhage from the mucous membrane of the nose, which has many capillaries, gums, digestive organs, and lungs, and eventually subcutaneous bleeding throughout the body.

In any case, it seems better to go to the hospital as soon as you are bitten.

An illustration on how to identify a snake was posted on the Twitter site below.Please refer to it.

●Temporary measures

After all, I think that it is to suck out poison, but if you suck it badly with your mouth, it may be dangerous, but in an emergency, you suck it in your mouth and exhale with blood.

Also, I think it may be a temporary treatment to stop the poison from bleeding with a string or towel so as not to go to the center of the body.(To the extent that it is not overtightened and necrotic)

In my case, I always carry a poison remover when riding in the mountains.

First of all, when you go to the mountains so that you don't get bitten by a snake, the first thing to do is to be careful, but second, if you are bitten, carry something like a poison remover with you. It is to send it.

And I think the most important thing is to deal calmly without panicking.

I'll definitely panic if I say such a thing, so I make sure to check it on my blog.
