Default Can You Spot The Copperhead Snake?

No fair looking at the second picture until you have really tried to locate the snake in the first picture.

NO Peaking.












Be careful out there!

Yea, I grew up in the southeast and even today am careful where I step due to early snake influence. I actually did find it but probably because I knew the pattern and color.

When I was about 13, I stepped on one of those once. Thank goodness it was really early in the morning and very cool...I moved faster than the snake when I felt my bare(!) foot touch it. Scary!

Wow, glad we don't have them around here. I knew what color they were, but couldn't see it in the first photo until I peaked at the second.

Snakes don't scare me but I will kill a copperhead when I see one.
I almost stepped on one this summer.I was going into the barn to get some feed and just as I opened the smaller door to the barn ,I noticed its tell slithering under the door. By the time I could get something to kill it with he had slithered under the feed bin.
I still look every time I go into the barn now, I am sure he is long gone by now, but I still always open that door very carefully, and look real good.

Okie

I think I would have seen it in real life, since they are much larger than the pic. We do have them here. I disturbed 2 this summer while mowing. My husband dispatched the first. The second disappeared into a hole in the lawn, and hasn't been seen since ( That was at least a month ago.)
I will take them any time to a nest of yellow jackets !
Actually, the snakes are just as afraid of us as we are of them. I have a healthy respect for the poisonous ones, but like the non poison ones.

Exactly,Marian
I know that snakes are just as afraid of us, as we are of them,but I just don't want to accidentally step on a poisonous one.
I respect them too. But I will try to kill the copperhead's, if I am fast enough! LOL!
The non poisonous don't bother me at all.
Okie

I saw him, but had to look real carefully - AND I didn't look at the second picture first! I am one of those people who really gets into "Where's Waldo" though, so ...
