By far, the most dangerous venomous snake at the lake. N.C. leads the nation in venomous snake bites with 5 x the national average and all because of this snake. An old adage is that the reason you see so many dead ones on the road is that they are so aggressive that they will take on a 3000 lb vehicle. It is actually just the opposite.
