Copperhead snakes are venomous and live in much of the U.S., primarily along the east coast and as far west as Texas. They are copper-tan in color and range from 2- to 4-feet long.
In addition to general symptoms, copperhead bites produce other notable symptoms, appearing minutes to hours after a bite. These include:
- Rapid swelling
- Trouble breathing
- Heart rhythm changes
- Metallic, rubbery, or minty taste
- Numbness or tingling sensation
- Lymph node swelling
