Snake Bite is a leather cat O nine tails with a real snake spine encased in the acrylic handle. The tails also have snake vertebra tied into the knotted ends. This cat o nine has a very scratchy, abrasive feel. If knife play and a flogger had a baby, this would be it. While I wouldn't recommend this flogger for the faint of heart, it isn't as intense as most people think when they first see it.
The bones are professionally cleaned from a sustainable source and are more durable than you think. Avoid hitting hard objects such as metal or wood with the tails. There are nine tails, with four snake vertebra each.
The cat o nine in the photo is the one you will receive.
