Check out what was in the yard today. This is the second one in 2 weeks. This bad boy was 32" long and very fiesty. There is even still a piece of stick or something in his mouth. I was about 10 mins from leaving for work so i used my snake stick to get him under control and had to walk thru the house to get the camera with him in hand so these pics were just a minute or two after catching him. I got a nice close up of the head. Is it any wonder where the Copperhead gets its name. Look at the belly shot, looks like he had just fed. I was out looking for snakes and didn't even know he was there. I reached down to lift a rock and realized i was straddling him. If you have never handled a Copperhead they are pretty strong for their size. Any one else have much exp with Coppers.
