There is a snake that is very poisonous that looks similar to this one, but like you said you should not fear the snake unless you disturb it.

Welllllll

LOL where did you hear that at? Not true at all, there is plenty of anti-venom out there for this species and all other venomous snakes in the US.

There is no known anti-venom

This is not death in my face, nor is it poisonous. This is a venomous snake (venom is injected, poison is ingested), and just because it is venomous does not mean it is dangerous. It is only dangerous if I'm careless or do something stupid, snakes are nothing to fear.
