  • Title:Copperhead Them:Looking for Rattlesnakes Me: I thought you were looking for coppersnakes

  • What boys watch: brave wilderness What men watch: Steve Irwin

  • Aren't copperheads venomous?

  • Coyote please be safe I don’t want you to end up like the sting ray guy

  • Copperhead?? Umm.. not too...

  • I almost stepped on a copperhead once I remember I walked over to my mom and I was like oh I almost stepped on a copperhead she had a panic attack she hates snakes but I love snakes I believe that they're usually misunderstood because if your about to die aren't you going to defend yourself

    • You pretty much have to be messing around with them like this guy or step on them to get bit. They're really docile. I stopped and got one out of the middle of the road once and it never struck at the shovel. Babies will strike at movement. Be very careful of babies.

  • We have many here in North Ga, I’ve heard the baby copperhead is more dangerous because it doesn’t know how much venom is enough and fills you up. Any validity to this?

  • Glad u didn’t catch an orichimaru

  • There's PEOPLE doing your show on the History Channel about to be rich and famous

  • I was bit by a copper head

  • Why would you go through all that to find a rattlesnake in WV? I can take you to two dens that are a five minute walk from a road you can drive a Corvette on no problem. And if it's a copperhead you're looking for we can just walk out around the barn or down along the creek at my house.

  • Keep can’t make it over a tiny pile of rockslmao

  • Tired of folks crying about coyote getting his idea stolen by kings of pain..did they technically steal it yes. However it wasnt his idea to begin be accurate he stole the idea from Schmidt who originally created the sting pain index in the 80s. So karma maybe..keep crying while coyote isnt. Some fan base.

  • Even newborns are venomous.

  • Coyote replied to my message on intagram

  • oi

  • Not even enough to give you a headache Or should isay too twenty Oh hang on they all live in Australia

  • 6:08 we call em blue bellys where I am from

  • Is it just a myth that is you smell cucumber then their could be copperheads around!!!

  • I’m a not normal person, and I’m about to enter the oof zone with the pieces of wood that make my house

  • Am I the only one who noticed the spider on the copperheads back when they were showing how they camouflage?

  • His hair is cancled

  • Plz make a brown recluse spider episode of u finding one I would love to see it cuz u havent done it on ur channel I think

  • It is as dangerous as me >:)😈

  • Dude is a girl?

  • How deadly is this snake? I don't know. Stick your finger in his face and see what happens!

  • Hey Coyote! I love your videos alot and I'm really excited for the next one already. The nature and animals you record are beautiful, cute and interesting! Keep it up!

    • Oh! I'm 12, turning 13 in the spring 0w0

    • I’m only 8

    • UWU it’s cute! * I’m not a boy I’m a girl * I’m just on a diff account!

    • @anthony nino Heheh, I drew it for fun a few weeks ago🤗

    • TheAlpineOwl Your profile pic is killing me 😂🥳

  • Should have filled the ditches in with dirt and rock so the Jeep wouldn't get stuck then continue driving

  • Please please please come to Rochester, Minnesota!

  • Find a leopard gecko. 🐆

  • In my backyard we have voles and bunnies

  • Looking for Medusa's babies SUPER DANGEROUS!!!

  • A copperhead isn't deadly unless you go looking for them. Over 90% of them time, people who get bit by a rattlesnake are drunk and decide to start messing with it. People who invest in snake boots and carry a pistol loaded with snake shot are wasting their money. Rattlesnakes are not aggressive toward people, far from it. Carrying a pistol is a good idea out there but rattlesnakes are not your problem.

  • Roses are red violets are blue I’m scared of everything like if you are too.

  • For reals tho

  • try dragonfruit

  • Find James grocery store

  • Come and visit me in West Virginia

  • I Really appreciate how gentle and respectful you guys are with the wildlife and snakes you handle : )

  • I miss you so much Cayote!😩

  • Hey Coyote, have you seen this history channel show they’re starting called Kings of Pain? It looks exactly like everything you’ve already done.

    • Bernadine Benoschek You say once again as if you’ve told me this before. I know Coyote didn’t come up with the sting pain index. I was specifically talking from a content/media standpoint.

    • Once again..yes they did technically steal his idea..however he stole it from shmidt who came up with the sting pain index originally in the 80s. Sooo yeah..karma maybe?

  • I'm a person and I'm about to enter the bite zone,with the spiders that like to go in my house

  • Just go to Coopers Rock st. Park WV

  • Gotta come to PA for Timber rattlers.

  • Snake at 11:27: AYE MAN lemme GO

  • Did kings of pain just steal this man's show?

    • @Bernadine Benoschek coyote was the first i believe to film it. plus having IT-tvs helped him get popular. so he didn't really steal the idea just documented it differently.

    • @Bernadine Benoschek Ah, there's more to this story!

    • Well if you want to be technical yes..however coyote stole it from a man named shmidt who originally came up with the pain index back in the 80s..soooo yeah.

    • I thought this guy was recruited onto that show unless they purposely found a host that looks just like him.

  • I thought it was cornybread

  • Coyote: how deadly is copperhead? Me: if it scares you then it’s very deadly, honestly you been stung/bit by a lot of deadly things with no fear

  • Who else luves un west virginia

  • I’m Coyote Peterson, and today we’re gonna be studying Moto Moto

  • South Carolina is flooded with these, they like to hide in the pine needles. I remember when i was younger you were almost guaranteed to step on one if you decided to walk through the undesturbed pines. Ive killed several, actually met a kid down their that was bitten by one aswell it missed him up mentally think he lost some toes aswell if im not mistaken. Nothing gets your adrenaline flowing like walking through the woods then realizing your 2 feet away from a pit viper camo'ed out in the leaves. I used to just freeze an very slowly grab a stick to wack it with. Usually took a gun with me though. Live up north now though an can honestly say i havent seen the first venomous snake the entire 7 yrs ive been up here. They do have some bigass rat snakes around here though! You need to go down south an find a coach whip, i got to see one of those aswell as a glass snake. All kinds down their

  • Skip. P.S. The answer is, "Not very."

  • I'm sure being bitten by a copperhead would be no fun, I'm told by those in the know that 95% of those bitten would survive without permanent problem with no treatment at all. I worked in an ED for years, saw multiple copperhead bite victims, and none I saw were anywhere close to dying. Rattlesnakes are a whole different story. Closest I saw to death was a man who was highly allergic to venom, as well as the toxicity of the venom. We saw dry bites as well. This is when a snake bites as a warning instead of injecting venom. This is thought to be a warning shot by the snake to "Don't Tread on Me". Venomous snakes only produce and carry a limited amount of venom. It makes sense would try to conserve venom it needs to kill and eat and not waste it on something far too big to consume. However, if actually stepped on, it likely wouldn't hesitate to unload.

  • Can u go see more animals like lions and other kinda big animal

  • Hey Coyote, love your vids man! We might even be related who knows. Just wanted to let you know there’s a new series on the history channel called “Kings of pain” where they’re basically copying every bite you’ve ever done... Just wanted to let you know. You’ll always be the king of pain in my book! Keep up the good word fam! (:

  • Cucumbers.

  • Let it bite you and we will see how dangerous it is.

  • The best way to avoid an encounter is to be noisy. Most predators will hear you coming and leave (as the timbers would have if they had picked a good spot).

  • Guy doesn't know his wilderness. If a large predator frequents the place, a smaller predator will find another spot.
