The Western Diamondback rattlesnake is the most venomous snake in the United States.

It's the snake that causes the most fatalities when someone is bitten.

Although copperhead snakes seem to bite the most people the copperheads bite is rarely fatal since their venom is not as toxic as the Western Diamondback rattlesnakes venom.
