  • Here in Virginia where Copperheads are one of two venomous native snakes (the other being Eastern Diamond Back Rattlers,) we don’t think of copperheads as “medically insignificant” as I’ve heard Dingo say before. To the contrary, we are taught that they’re potentially deadly. Almost everyone knows at least one person who’s been bitten! I know 2 people, both are fine now. But it wasn’t an insignificant event either time by any means! One man was bitten on the leg when taking out the garbage at night, and his leg swelled up to 4 times its normal size and he spent 2 days in the hospital receiving antivenom and treatment. The other, my uncle, received a bite to the hand when he picked up a tangled up water hose and found that a copperhead was part of the hose. He was in ICU for 3 days, in hospital for a week. These snakes are no joke. Both of these guys are large men too. Imagine a small child getting tagged. They’re in our woods mostly, but unlike the more recluse rattlesnakes, they’re more prone to wandering up into yards in suburban areas. We don’t walk in the woodsy areas near our house without talk boots on, and we have to be careful when retrieving firewood or clearing yard debris (also because of black widows and brown recluses, something we have TONS of even in busy city areas!) Our 4 venomous creatures are all I can handle. I can NOT imagine living in Australia or Africa or even parts of South America where all of the animals are like “I’ll kill you in 4 minutes! You have less than 30 seconds to get to a hospital or you’re dead! Or your arm will turn black and fall off! Or I’ll eat your pet cat!” 😂

  • Some people say Copperhead venom doesn't hurt. I beg to differ. I was tagged on the foot in 2010 & was in hospital 3 days. Drs done a one cut fasciotomy(I still have the scar & medical records to prove this) & gave me CroFab. Evidently it helped cause the swelling finally stopped mid-thigh. It was VERY painful.

  • I've had one encounter with a copperhead. it was right next to my foot and my cousins uncle on the maternal side (im a cousin from the paternal) decided it'd be a good idea to get rid of it with a shotgun. I was lucky he didn't blow my foot off, though the snakes head was gone.

  • Of the 19 confirmed snake bite fatalities from domestic species in the U.S. since 2011, 4 came from Copperhead bites. They weren't all a result of anaphylactic shock. I think part of the perception problem of Copperheads being incapable of delivering a potentially life threatening bite is a by-product of their underwhelming L.D. score. Humans aren't mice. Whether or not this is the root cause for under-estimating their potency, I can share that is was my perception as well as the staff of the Nature and Science Center where I worked when I was tagged on the finger by a 2.5 foot Copperhead. This happened in 1984 and I seriously doubt the center would allow someone relatively inexperienced like myself to directly interact with their venomous collection today. In my case, I received either a dry bite or an extremely low yield of venom. It was quite a few years ago but if memory serves me my symptoms were limited swelling and a little bit of pain. I didn't even get a headache or experience nausea. For the record, I wasn't handling the snake, I was trying to move it to a holding bin so I could clean it's habitat. I was fortunate to get a "free lesson" in the risks of working with venomous snakes and it marked the last time I put myself in that position. I continue to be fascinated by these beautiful animals but now only from a safe distance. I'm curious about one thing though. Is there really such a thing as a "dry bite", meaning no venom entered the victim at all? While adult snakes are capable of controlling their venom yield, wouldn't some venom leak out of a hollow fang, even if it was an extremely small quantity? Perhaps there are just too many variables to be able to generalize the relative danger of one venomous snake in relation to another. There are surface elements of a bite including venom yield, location of the bite, time-frame to medical treatment, quality of medical treatment. There are health factors related to bite victim including underlying conditions, potential for allergic reaction, and behavior following the bite. You can also throw in the high likelihood of regional differences in the venom components of a particular species. We know with certainty this is the case for Rattlesnakes. I don't know if it's the case for Copperheads, but I think it's in the realm of possibilities, especially if their primary food sources vary.

  • Copperheads are our common snakes here in Northeast Pennsylvania. Great snakes. We actually have a local festival called the rattlesnake roundup. In 2019 there was a copperhead a bit over 5' which is extremely odd to see but had that thick fat looking body still. Come to find she had a full tummy and was pregnant. But biggest one I saw. And we had a really heavy rattlesnake caught then too. Everyone goes out from the local town who handles snakes and catches the local venomous snakes most common. Then they get a festival Sunday afternoon teach us about them and show the dangers of hiking in our areas and how to avoid bitings. Would love to see dingo make a random trip to make a guest appearance at it some year

  • ..I'm telling you, from someone who lives where there are LOTS of Copperheads..they are NOT "mildly venomous" or "semi-venomous" has always concerned me that they are so often presented that, they will not take you out as quickly or surely as a rattlesnake, but they can grow to be quite big, and are much grumpier and more prone to strike than most rattlesnakes, particularly a timber rattlesnake...and their bites can be VERY nasty and painful, and yes, sometimes life-threatening...remember, they are closely related to the Cottonmouth, which has a really nasty and potentially life-threatening bite. I have noticed the European Adder is also presented as being semi-venomous or mildly venomous, and not dangerous also...since I know nothing about European Adders, I can't comment on that one, but I wonder how it's bite compares to a Copperhead?....

No disrespect meant, I'm just imagining this man as the most reckless person ever!

It's expensive and they seldom have to use it. Benedryl and cold compresses do just fine. It's what the vets do for most cases. My big dog was bitten a couple weeks ago, we saw it happen, but it was pretty much a dry bite. Slight swelling gone overnight, but each person and each animal and each bite is different. This bite was frightening
