My dad was given 20 viles of some antivenom when he was in the hospital for a broadband copperhead bite...not sure what kind but he nearly lost his thumb. Just because coppers are considered "mild" doesn't make them any less dangerous by any means.

Broadbanded/Trans-Pecos are more toxic than Northern and Southern copperheads.

I absolutely love my copperhead, very gorgeous snakes in a setup. As far getting bit, I wouldn't know as it hasn't happened and I take quite a bit precaution with my hots. I've got some footage of him striking at my camera. They're quick lil buggers thats for sure. Best advice is treat Any hot snake with caution and know your protocols per species. Utilize your hooks and tongs and be sure when transferring to tubs that your lids are secure and out of reach of animals and people. Personally I'd suggest something a little more sluggish like a great basin rattlesnake for your first. Easy to work with as far as they're less squirrely than copperheads in my opinion. Also significantly calmer demeanor but like all hots, handle with care. Best of luck.
