Trimeresurus flavoviridis ~ Habu

Trimeresurus flavoviridis is a venomous pit viper species endemic to the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. No subspecies are currently recognized.

Venom 

The incidence of snakebite in the Amami Islands is 2 per 1,000 people, which is very high. The venom of this species is of high toxicity, yet the fatality rate is less than 1%. If a bite victim receives medical care promptly, bites are not life-threatening. However, 6-8% do suffer permanent disability.

I heard some guy say that abortion was wrong, and I was just like, “It’s not your uterus.” 

and he was like, “What’s a uterus?”

@kdbugg14 killed a copperhead at Work today!!! #breaktime #snakekiller #copperhead #snakes #followme #scary

Congratulations. You successfully killed a non-venomous corn snake. And even if it was a venomous copperhead you could have called your local animal control to remove it safely rather than kill it. But then again I really have no hope for people like you who take pride in killing innocent animals then bragging about it like some hero.
You disgust me.

Congratulations, another fucking moron who decides to slaughter helpless, harmless animals. Good job. Congrats. You’re clearly a creature worthy of high regard.

There’s a special place in hell for people like you, OP. If you can’t even ID a snake, you shouldn’t be trying to kill it. Now everyone knows what a disgusting pile of shit you are.

even if it was a copperhead… you’re a certified piece of shit.
copperheads control rodent populations, if you are too dull to care about snakes themselves, at least care about that. enjoy your rats.
60% of snakebite cases involve some dumbass trying to kill the snake. god, I hope you become part of that statistic.
