A two-year-old girl killed a snake in revenge for biting her lip by sinking her teeth into it.

The toddler, identified only by her initials S.E., was playing in the back garden of her family home in the village of Kantar, in Bingol, Turkey, when her screams were heard by neighbours on August 10.  

They dashed to help the youngster, but found she had a 20-inch (50cm) snake clamped in her mouth and a bite mark on her lower lip.

After killing the snake, the neighbours performed first aid and called paramedics, according to local media.

An eight-year-old boy was recently rushed to hospital after an adder bite caused his hand to swell up ‘five times the normal size’.

Jake Closier was on a day trip to the beach when he was attacked by the venomous snake.

He was with father Kenny, 33, and mother Sophie, 32, at popular beauty spot Hemsby beach in Norfolk, when the snake launched at him while he played in the sand dunes.

Sophie initially thought the bite was from a harmless grass snake but realised something was wrong when Jake’s hand went ‘completely hard’.
