Venomous snakes have always fascinated and caused great fear to humans but these creatures are actually normally quite gentle and shy unless provoked into defending themselves. In this program we’ll discuss the various species of venomous snakes found in both North and South Carolina, their natural history and distribution in the wild, facts and myths about them, snakebite, and what to do when they are encountered in the wild. In addition, participants will gain a better understanding of and learn basic identification skills concerning these very misunderstood and feared reptiles.
