    Four Deadly Poisonous Snakes in America

    For your safety, know these 4 poisonous (venomous) snakes, and what they look like – to avoid being bitten by one.

    There are thousands of types (species) of snakes in the world, while more than one hundred species are found in North America – and some of them are poisonous (venomous).

    The poisonous (venomous) snakes of North America fall into two groups:
    Coral Snakes and Pit Vipers (which include Rattlesnakes, Cottonmouth, & Copperhead)

    For the last 20 years or so, the king snakes around here have been well taken care of. And I went from 2 copperhead bit dogs a year to none. Followed a king into the garage yesterday and just told the wife and kids it was there. They get free run of the place.

    We have a couple of monster Black Racers around our house and the wife goes nutz when I just leave them alone. I know as a fact they've eaten at least two baby pigmy rattlers, and when I showed her the evidence(the racer with a tail sticking out of its mouth)she got pissed at me.

    Things are easier in Australia.

    Q: "What Australian snakes are poisonous?"

    A: "All of them."

    I leave the black snakes alone for the most part. One scared my youngest son pretty bad when he was about 7 tho.I handed him a machete and let him get over his fear of snakes. Glad he didn't run into that rattler that chased me a couple years ago. Them things are nuts!

    the released pythons are not much of a concern up Astor, florida way where 4th is

    but they are just east of here, between me and miami sits the everglades we got pythons, rattlesnakes ( they grow big down here) cottonmouths and coral snakes,
    I lived in Reno, Nev in the late 80's the rattlers weren't big but extremly numerous and nasty
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    The rattlers here on the mountain are around the rocks mostly till one thinks laying in the driveway is a little bit warmer. They're usually older and quicker to show them selves. Like crotchety old men. Hmm who does that remind me of? LOL don't ask my wife!

    I hunted for several years on a friends land, around Sweetwater TX. About 400 hundred acers. lot's of rocky hills, with lots of rattle snakes. In fact the owner
    allows his land to be used in rattle snakes round ups. Around the stock tanks and low green meadow you will find the other three nasty fellows.
    The popcycle snake is easy to spot. You can smell the cotton mouth, but the copperhead is real good at being hard to spot.
    For a wast land, this place has a vast amount a game on it. Never been snake bit, but have had many close calls.
