What makes them so dangerous is not just the kinds of toxins that they can emit, but also the effect that toxin can have on its victim. The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc. Most venomous species in the U.S. are a type of pit viper, including copperheads and rattlesnakes. These reptiles live in the water and hide in the brush or in the water itself waiting for potential victims to arrive. The virus is found in the saliva of the animal and enters the bloodstream of any living thing it bites. Most species of venomous snakes are pit vipers, which can navigate their environment and hunt using infrared-sensing receptors that allow them to detect the heat of their prey.

The important thing to know is that most snakes are non-venomous, and pretty much none of them are aggressive. Most species of venomous snakes are pit vipers, which can navigate their environment and hunt using infrared-sensing receptors that allow them to detect the heat of their prey.
