Poisonous Snake Bites
The U.S is home to many poisonous snakes, including these four snakes: coral snake, rattlesnake, water moccasin, and copperhead. Bite symptoms may include
- severe burning pain at the bite site,
- swelling that spreads out from the bite,
- trouble breathing,
- and changes in heart rate.
Bite severity depends on many factors, including the amount of venom injected, bite location, and a person's age and health. Seek immediate medical care if you think you've been bitten by a poisonous snake.
