A stunned Redditor shared his shockingly expensive medical bill that came as a result of a rattlesnake bite.

“This is the cost of a Rattlesnake bite in America,” Redditor Dan_Haggerty10News wrote alongside a photo of the bill.

A summary of the charges showed an $83,341 pharmacy bill, a $22,433 charge for laboratory services, and a $17,766 intensive care charge, among others. In total, the hospital trip cost the bite victim a total of $153,161.25.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

“The best part: 'Your payment is due: July 27th, 2015,'” Redditor Taymacman said in response to the stunningly expensive hospital stay.

“At least they gave you two weeks to come up with the money," another Redditor, Vort3x, added. "That was nice of them!"

Do you think the medical bill was unnecessarily expensive?
