Dangerous Wildlife of Southeastern USA
Document identification means for dangerous wildlife, dangers, and treatment means/methods. Example: Southern Copperhead: Pit viper (Larger triangle shaped head with sensory pits) with a somewhat diamond shaped pattern emerges between bands on back of the snake. Note the green tip to the tail, as the younger ones will often have a green "Mock rattle" which disappears with age. Danger: Low potency venom (for a pit viper) symptoms include extreme pain, swelling and nausea. Seek immediate medical help as allergic reactions and secondary infections are possible.
