It appears that none of this man's snakes got loose, but then he was also doing something illegal, so who is to say he had only 24 dangerous snakes?

Snakebite tied to death of man who had 24 venomous snakes in his home

Chesterfield resident Jack Redmond, 70, was found dead with bite marks that appeared to be from a Chinese palm viper on a finger, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Friday.
While poisonous, that snake is not typically deadly, but experts said Redmond's age and health -- he was battling prostate cancer and taking medications for that -- might have played a role.
