There is no anti-venom for these bites, but what a way to go. Naga are divine and semi-deity figures found in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, with deep significance across South Asian and Southeast Asian cultures. They are often depicted as half-human, half-serpent beings residing in the enchanted netherworld, but are also described as humans with snakes protruding from their head or necks, or as common serpents. They are known to be powerful, prideful and splendid. - Camilla d’Errico
