Member of the pit viper family, the Southern Copperhead has a lighter, more tan, coloration compared to the darker more brown and red Northern Copperhead. While these snakes are venomous, the bite is not as severe as the Rattlesnake, Water Moccasin or Coral snake in the United States. This snake was found in Montgomery County, NC. This snake measured about 38 inches. Nikon D1H, 1/200 @ F/5.6, ISO 200.
I thought this would be good for the In the Eyes of Danger Group because you can really see the copperheads eyes.
