i have never worked on a venimous snake bite on a child. about 14 years old is the youngest i have ever personally worked on. i'd say 90% are over the age of 50- working in flower beds, gardens or carports and drive ways out of maybe 30-40 historical bites.
if they are younger than 50, alcohol is usually involved.
when i was in college, we got most of our venom stock from above ground pools. shoot some gasoline under the pool and all kinds of slithering critters will scatter out.
