timber rattlesnake

Potentially, this is one of North America's most dangerous snakes, due to its long fangs, impressive size and high venom yield. Fortunately, this is to some degree offset by its relatively mild disposition. Before striking, they often do a good deal of preliminary rattling and feinting.

Crotalus horridus is a venomous pitviper species found in the eastern United States. No subspecies are currently recognized. This is the only rattlesnake species in most of the populous northeastern United States and was featured prominently in the American Revolution, specifically as the symbol of the first Continental Navy in the First Navy Jack.
