Copperhead Bites Itself! [VIDEO]

Here’s the thing about copperheads: Their venom is the least potent of all North American pit vipers, BUT they hold the title for “most likely to bite humans” going away.

After watching this video, it’s easy to see why.

Copperheads are common across the southeastern portion of the US, from Texas all the way up into Pennsylvania, with even a little range into Massachusetts.

These snakes are particularly aggressive; the issue is that they love to hide in places where you’re likely to surprise them — like woodpiles, raked leaves, and creek banks.

WARNING: If you’re squeamish about headless snakes mercilessly biting their own decapitated bodies (which is totally freaking insane/horrifying/AMAZING)… this video may not be for you.
