Protect yourself against snake bite while in the desert or woods! THOUSANDS of people are bitten by venomous snakes (mostly rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins) in the United States each year. Rattlesnakes possess a set of fangs with which they can inject large quantities of toxic venom. The venom travels through the bloodstream, destroying tissue and causing swelling, internal bleeding, and intense pain. Even non-fatal bites can cause severe pain and long-lasting tissue damage. Don't take a chance! Protect your lower legs whenever you're in snake country!
