Many snakes are harmless, but the poisonous ones can be deadly. If you do happen to run into a slithering foe while out on an adventure, it's important to know whether it's poisonous. Coral snakes, rattlesnakes, cottonmouths and copperheads are four types of poisonous snakes common in North America.
