I saw a picture of this bite, looks bad. I think the reporter made a mistake on either the locality or the snake specie here, there are no Fer de Lance in California.

Nope can't be a B. asper, more like C. atrox. Some might say karma for the number of snakes he has eaten in his show. I say $h1t happens.

The Bothrops atrox has hemotoxin which causes tissue damage and if the viper injected a large amount of venom that could easily happen.

"Hemotoxins" do not cause tissue damage. As the name implies it destroys the blood.
