    Fun little story, as a kid I always wanted a pet snake, a boa or python was preferred but I'd settle for a corn snake... but the issue was that my mother was terrified of snakes and would always say no, so I thought going down by the lake and catching a baby cottonmouth, which are more dangerous than adults, and keeping it in a container to show her would prove that I could handle a less dangerous pet.... turns out that only made her more terrified and totally backfired... never was allowed to have a pet snake for certain after that.

    I almost stepped on a copperhead once I remember I walked over to my mom and I was like oh I almost stepped on a copperhead she had a panic attack she hates snakes but I love snakes I believe that they're usually misunderstood because if your about to die aren't you going to defend yourself

      You pretty much have to be messing around with them like this guy or step on them to get bit. They're really docile. I stopped and got one out of the middle of the road once and it never struck at the shovel. Babies will strike at movement. Be very careful of babies.

    We have many here in North Ga, I’ve heard the baby copperhead is more dangerous because it doesn’t know how much venom is enough and fills you up. Any validity to this?

    Why would you go through all that to find a rattlesnake in WV? I can take you to two dens that are a five minute walk from a road you can drive a Corvette on no problem. And if it's a copperhead you're looking for we can just walk out around the barn or down along the creek at my house.

    Tired of folks crying about coyote getting his idea stolen by kings of pain..did they technically steal it yes.
    However it wasnt his idea to begin be accurate he stole the idea from Schmidt who originally created the sting pain index in the 80s. So karma maybe..keep crying while coyote isnt. Some fan base.

  • Giada_De_Low_Rent_Tits

    A copperhead isn't deadly unless you go looking for them. Over 90% of them time, people who get bit by a rattlesnake are drunk and decide to start messing with it. People who invest in snake boots and carry a pistol loaded with snake shot are wasting their money. Rattlesnakes are not aggressive toward people, far from it. Carrying a pistol is a good idea out there but rattlesnakes are not your problem.

      Bernadine Benoschek You say once again as if you’ve told me this before. I know Coyote didn’t come up with the sting pain index. I was specifically talking from a content/media standpoint.

      Once again..yes they did technically steal his idea..however he stole it from shmidt who came up with the sting pain index originally in the 80s. Sooo yeah..karma maybe?
