List of fatal snake bites in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though, it's still a miniscule amount. I see you are from texas, but don't forget the rest of us 49 states when talk about m'erica.
I suspect a majority of bite related deaths aren't categorized. The recent case I cited above is an example. The guy died a day later of a heart attack so that was ruled the cause of death, though they admit the bite (or excitement) likely caused the heart attack.

Hard to say really, but its certainly fewer here in the US than in other parts of the world for numerous reasons. Most of us wear shoes, number of accessible hospitals or treatment centers, number of lazy people who never go into the wilderness, etc.

Deuce, don't forget the number of people who carry guns and blow them the hell away.
Some people just can't leave critters alone. "Hot damn! I almost stepped on a rattler. Better get out the .45..."

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave.
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

Yeah...we can thank Hollywood and the bible for peoples' inherent fear of snakes. Funny thing is that most bites are the result of the people trying to kill the snake. Karmic backlash much? LOL

Problem is that, without snakes, you end up overwhelmed with rodents or, worse yet, other snakes. People kill Kingsnakes all the time without thinking about the fact (or knowing, or caring) that they EAT the venomous snakes that COULD hurt them.
