The cottonmouth, also known as a water moccasin or water pit viper, is the only kind of viper that can live in the water. As far as potency of venom goes, that's the Coral snake - but that's a rare and docile snake. As mentioned, these animals inject a strong cytotoxin. Contact a professional wildlife management technician for positive identification. Many snake usually prefer to hide under heavy cover in cool areas. Some are great climbers, some are aquatic. Each of these can be quite dangerous in how they affect their victim. They sleep in roosts during the daytime, and emerge at dusk.

Appropriate treatment has to be given to the person bitten by bats or any animals that might carry the rabies virus. This classification is due to the fact it replicates in the nerve tissues and then infects the brain. BAT BEHAVIOR: Bats are nocturnal. BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. Vipers strike out quickly at people who come too close and startle them or attempt to grab and handle them, injecting venom through needle-like fangs that causes immediate swelling and pain. The Rabies virus is called a Neurotropic Virus. They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures.

The bites of venomous snakes, however, can be lethal if not treated immediately. One myth about snakes is that if a snake has a triangular head, it is poisonous (venomous). This is not true - most snakes have triangular heads. As reptiles, their body temperature is regulated by surrounding temperatures. They then fly back out to feed some more. That said, if you ask what snake kills the most humans in the US, the answer is the Timber Rattlesnake, because it's encountered more frequently, and thus it kills more people. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. However, bats in the north hibernate in colder weather. However, ironically enough, it is a snake that injects a cytotoxin that has established itself as the most deadly in all of North America. They'll get into pools, screened porches, and oftentimes, the home itself.
