Best Answer

Rattlesnakes are really harmful, because sometimes snake bites can kill people. Actually, the most dangerous snake is called the Western Daimondback rattler.
They can be deadly. If you are bitten by one you should seek medical attention immediately. You should not panic. When you panic, your heart rate speeds up which makes your blood flow speed up and brings the poison to your heart much quicker.

If left alone, rattlesnakes are very peaceful and beneficial to the environment. It is when man puts himself in danger by not using common sense and molests or tries to capture or kill these snakes that things can go drastically bad in a short time. Rattlesnakes help control populations of rodents that carry diseases and compete with man for food. They need to be respected and allowed their place in the environment.
