Recently, a man from my area was bitten by a rattlesnake while camping in Elk County. From what I understand, he was simply sitting by the campfire with his family when the snake bit him. Unfortunately, the bite was fatal.
This past week, a dog was bitten by a copperhead while walking with his owner along a local walking trail. He survived, but not without some scary moments.
I came across the following chart on the MD DNR Wildlife & Heritage Service Facebook page today and thought you might find it helpful. While I'm not frightened of snakes and actually like them, it's good to know which ones to steer clear of, right?
