ARTifacts: Snakes of Ohio

Clip: Season 3 Episode 23 | 3m 8s Video has closed captioning.

Snakes are a much-maligned creature in Ohio. The vast majority that an Ohioan encounters are harmless. There are only three venomous species in Ohio – two of them are endangered, and and all of them are shy and non-aggressive. We’ll help you identify these creatures so in the future you can remember that, when it comes to snakes, they’re more afraid of us than we should be of them.
