not a copperhead .I think it is a milk snake or a hog nosed snake
its all good
Holy cow. I've only ever seen one little snake.
I don't see many either, my wife sees a lot though. In a 30 minute walk with her behind me I stepped over three snakes and never saw them, I definitely would not have seen the rattler she almost stepped on, I had trouble finding it with her pointing to it, they have great camo for dry leaves. We were at an old mill site in MA and I thought I'd scare her so I jumped back shouting snake and pointing to some bushes beside the trail. She said "what kind is it", be damned if I didn't point right to a snake.Holy cow. I've only ever seen one little snake.
Like bears, they learn to adapt, could of had better luck hunting from my patio in Portland, TN than driving an hour to hunt in national forest.had a deer in the backyard yesterday which is unusual as we live in the suburbs and rarely have deer. Maybe once or twice in the 15 years we have lived here.
