Snakes might be more afraid of you than you are of them, but when push comes to shove, a frightened or protective snake will strike. If you're unfortunate enough to be bitten by a mysterious slithering creature, you will want to identify it. Identifying your attacker is key to ensuring that you seek out the right treatment - and promptly.
Only one third of snakes are venomous, but that still means there are six hundred such species, and a pretty decent percentage of those are quite capable of unleashing enough poison to take down a human being - and even if they don't kill you, they can make you feel pretty darn awful and send you to the hospital. Plus, dangerous and deadly snakes aren't just found in exotic places or away from human habitation. There might just be one lurking in your back yard. So, be careful around that woodpile, and cut that high grass to protect yourself and your family from the deadly snakes in this quiz.
