It has been estimated that 7,000–8,000 people per year receive venomous bites in the United States, and only five of those people die. Most fatal bites are attributed to the eastern and western diamondback rattlesnake. Copperheads account for more cases of venomous snake bite than any other North American species; however, their venom is the least toxic, so their bite is seldom fatal. Many snake experts claim that the bite from a cottonmouth (aka water moccasin) is one of the most painful snake bites to endure. During my film work with snake expert Albert Killian, who has been bitten over sixty times, I had a chance to interview Albert in the hospital chortle after he was bitten by a cottonmouth. This interview with snake expert Albert Killian was filmed by Heiko Kiera in South Florida in 2009.
