Acts 28: 3 – 6
The Jews & heathen believed if a person was worthy of death a serpent would bite him.
5 (this is how Paul handled snakes) And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
These heathens made Paul a murder and the next hour a god, but exactly He was a child of God and a man of God.
The viper fastening on his hand was a trail of his faith.
It did not put Paul in the state of confusion.
I must not be in the will of God, but God said I must be a witness in Rome.

Notice where he shook it off, INTO THE FIRE.
He never looked for a tool to loosen it, Just trusted God.
