it is not in all danger, despite the fact that that's going to no longer be able to be stated that it has never, or won't in any respect happen. i for my area have been bitten three times by using copperheads in my series & are growing to be to be somewhat uncomfortable & had a uncomplicated degree of localized tissue harm, yet have not stepped forward gangreen or had any somewhat extreme issues. As between the previous posters spoke of, using anti-venom serum includes a actual threat to the chew sufferer of a a threat extreme allergic reaction that ought to kill the affected person on a similar time as the chew in many cases won't. That poster looks to think of that all and sundry anti-venoms are a similar, which isn't the case. there's a seperate anti-venom serum for each form of venomous snake. in case you have been bitten by using a water moccasin, they might not use copperhead anti-venom on the sufferer, so that's no longer a case of the docs saving the serum for a greater extreme snake chew from a greater venomous snake.
