I did. Rat snake or something like that and I would have just let it move along but I have a two year old that plays in our back yard and I just couldn't run the risk of a copperhead sticking around.

I know I could have just relocated it but I wanted to send a message to all his snake buddies...

Understand. ... Hate to see any snake killed, but with kids around I
fully understand, and unless someone has some experience or the
right equipment for catching venomous snakes, it's best not to try to
catch and relocate them...most snake bites happen when people try to
catch or kill them without the experience.

Thanks for posting the pic though... nice looking snake.

WOW. Surprised you didn't get bit!

This joker ended up between my feet when I saw it and I jump back out of the way before it could strike...but it definitely reared back like it was about to come at me. Not gonna lie...I was rattled.

Agreed! Very surprised and lucky. He was small and young. I turned on the light and picked him up with and extending clamp I have. Took him to the back of the yard and dropped him over the fence.

Default Re: Copperhead

Copperheads are not very aggressive snakes. Even though they're
venomous, the toxin is very low as for the potency of the venom. They'll
still mess up your day, but if you are going to get bitten by a venomous
snake, the copperhead is the one to take. .... There have been a lot
of people who have stepped directly on them, without being bitten, and
they are also notorious for giving dry (or defensive) bites without injecting
venom. Still nothing to play around with, or aggravate though.

Always amazes me when I see these things in the wild, or a picture of one
like this and see the way nature has given them just the right camouflage
for their habitat. Just the right colors, just the right pattern and just the
right mixture of each to make it almost disappear into it's environment.

With most animals that have natural predators, the fact they are still around guarantees they've avoided being eaten for 1000s of years. The traits that get passed on are the ones that keep you invisible. Nature is a miracle. It's scientific and still evokes feelings of faith that there is more out there than just particles and chance.

If I had the choice between these and the assorted constrictor snakes that have invaded our state, thanks to their sub room temperature IQ owners that released them into the wild, I'd take the copperheads.

After the incident in the story below, I wrote my state rep and senator and asked that open season be declared on such snakes in Florida. WARNING!!! The story contains pictures of a family dog killed by one of these snakes.

Florida (especially South Florida) has gotten hit HARD with a lot of different
types of "mistakes" from the reptile trade, and irresponsible owners over
the past several years, and it's created an environmental nightmare for
the current residents down there. Most of the illegal trade comes through
Miami, up from South America and Mexico, Outright braindead owners
who think it's cool to buy either a non domestic venomous snake, or
something like a Burmese Python or African Rock Python etc... until it
gets too big or difficult for them to handle, then they dump it in the
everglades. They have caused a major ecological imbalance down there
as well as a major endangerment to the human and pet population.

you won't die from a bite unless you're like 80 or an infant, however you don't want to get bit on an extremity, I've seen photos of idiots who've lost fingers. Venomous snake keepers who let familiarity breed contempt.
