<i>Besides, cottonmouths are deadly poisonous -- more so than rattlers
or copperheads, again IIRC.</i>... yes, on average but certain of the
smaller rattlers have more potent venom and the larger rattlers have
incredibly more venom though weaker per milliliter. It works out.
Cottonmouths are more than average timid snakes and use the propensity
to flee before striking. The most dangerous snake in NA, IMHO, is the
Coral Snake --- real short fangs and timid with little venom yet super
deadly.

The infra-red and odors are important.

What we consider raptors is also slanted --- the Bald Eagle for
example is almost exclusively a carrion eater. (Tell me if I'm wrong
on this Richard since I know you know birds far better)
