Snake venom and spiders habitat bacteria

Study group of researchers reported that they found a new habitat for bacteria. This habitat is unusual, because they found bacteria living in snake venom and spiders.

Bacteria are small, resourceful organisms. They can live in some of the strangest and most inhospitable places on our planet.

Call it arid deserts, toxic acid lakes, even deep in the earth’s crust beneath the ocean floor.

However, scientists have just discovered a very unexpected new habitat for the tiny, powerful microbe, in the venom of snakes and spiders.

The findings also contradict what scientists previously thought.

The venom of snakes and spiders is known to contain antimicrobial compounds, which scientists consider a sterile environment that does not allow microbes to thrive.

However, these findings reveal that the bacteria causing the infection could already be present in the poison before the victim was bitten.

This suggests anyone bitten by a snake or spider may also need to be treated for the infection.
