Nagini Wasn't Trying To Kill HarryPhoto: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1 / Warner Bros. Pictures
From a Redditor :
When Arthur Weasley was bitten by Nagini, it took weeks to find an antivenom and required a long stay in the hospital to fix him up. When harry was bitten by the same snake, Hermione was able to patch him up with just some Dittany, the seemingly most common medicine available.
From Redditor u/amyosaurus:
Nagini might not have used her venom at all when she bit Harry. Her orders from Voldemort were "Hold him," and that was her intention, not to kill him. "...she changed, changed into the snake, and attacked." He looked down at the puncture marks. "It wasn't supposed to kill me, just keep me there till You-Know-Who came." It's the venom, Arthur was fine except that the venom dissolved stitches and kept the wound open. she didn't use the venom on Harry (as that could've been fatal) and the wounds on Harry were just holes. Easily closed.
