From Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park:
The Copperhead
Scientific Name: Agkistrodon contortrix
The Copperhead is a moderately sized snake with copper colored blotches on a tannish background. It is found throughout hilly areas across the Eastern U.S. They are only found in the extreme northern counties of Florida along the Georgia border. Their bites are extremely painful however, there are no documented deaths from a Copperhead bite in Florida. Copperheads will often den with Timber Rattlesnakes. They prey on rodents, lizards and insects … especially cicadas. They are inoffensive snakes and are often trod upon.
