NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A family out enjoying the nature at Radnor Lake State Park, spotted a rattlesnake in a wooded area just off a path.
A herpetology expert with the Nashville Zoo, Nick Hanna, identified the snake as a timber rattlesnake.
According to Hanna, this is one of only four venomous snake species in Tennessee.
The other venomous types include pygmy rattler, copperhead and cottonmouth (water moccasin).
