Copperhead snakes love leaf litter to hide in. this is why they a lawn care providers worst enemy. They lay still in ambush mode coiled up and ready to strike at the first sign of a rodent or lizard that can be a great food source. The Copperhead snake can stay still for a very long time.

A copperhead snake can be very cranky, in fact one of the most crankiest in the nation. they have the ankle biter tag by most herpetologists. They are easy to aggression which has given them such a nasty name in our world. though most bites are attributed to stepping on the snake or pinning it down before it even strikes to get out of the situation the copperhead has found itself in. This is why I believe most bites by the copperhead are "dry bites" and not full of the toxic venom they can decide to give.

I have set beside and even moved the stone a Copperhead Snake was under and it froze in place. The Copperhead really wants less to do with us than we do with it. I am just really starting to understand these fascinating creatures. Absolutely beautiful and scary at the same time. They have spawned dreams and nightmares and yet I love what they are.
