Fangs for the concern, says Mark O'Shea | Media Monkey

While we sit at our desks on this fine Tuesday, contemplating the relative safety of our office jobs, let us spare a thought for Channel 4's Mark O'Shea. O'Shea, who presents Channel 4's Dangerous Reptiles series, had a scare at the weekend after a rather too-close encounter with one of his sharp-toothed friends. The Times reports that he was feeding a king cobra at West Midlands Safari Park on Sunday when it clamped its jaws around his leg. Knowing that the reptile's venom is strong enough to kill an elephant, staff leapt to his rescue and O'Shea was flown to the nearest hospital. Not to worry, though – O'Shea said yesterday: "It was just a nick, really. I won't lie, it did hurt a bit. We are going to have a full investigation, but it was an accident." Right, back to work everyone.
