Abstract

Nebraska has four kinds of poisonous snakes — the prairie rattlesnake, timber rattlesnake, western massasauga (a small rattlesnake), and copperhead. Knowing how to identify poisonous snakes, especially the kinds found in areas where you might go, is a good first step in avoiding them.

This publication provides information about Nebraska's poisonous snakes, some guidelines for avoiding snakebite, and suggestions on what to do in case of snakebite.
