Beautiful snake. I worked in the Herp lab in college and I don’t like killing snakes, but you can’t take chances with venomous snakes around the kiddos. I’d have done the same! Would make a cool hat band or bow backing!

That is a beautiful snake. My son would want to keep it as a pet and my wife would kill me if I didn’t kill it. #smartcall

Treated 4 copperhead-bit dogs over the past two weeks; the big snakes will dry-bite alot of the time, at least at first. The juveniles and younger snakes seem to just indiscriminately unload on the dogs.
Gosh that's terrible news. Yeah. Pretty sure this one was a juvenile. The head was small.

Chicken dinner goes to the first one who can identify this guy. He interrupted cigar night.

I’m totally gonna threadjack here but your danger noodle picture reminded me of the fine specimen they have at the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News. If you haven’t taken the herd yet scoot you’uns on over, the dinosaur trail is worth the price of admission. Dad to dad pro tip: take snacks/food, the cafeteria is closed. You can’t eat indoors but you can eat outside.

About how long was it? The juveniles have a yellowish-green tailtip, and are universally cranky and aggressive strikers if threatened. A big adult is usually way more laid-back; we had one visit us by the front steps awhile back while grilling steaks. We did dispatch her because of our dogs, but she never struck. The young one curled up in my daughter's field hockey cleats on the garage floor struck at me 15-20 times before I succeeded in my quest. I was struck by a 12-14"er a few years back, on December 17th (!). Early afternoon, sunnyside of a wooded hill, low 60's temp. Wasn't even thinking snake. Strike just bounced off my boot; I could be in an ad for Chippewa loggers.

That sounds like a great idea man. Thank you!

Learn something new every day! Ran outside and took this picture before church. Doesn't look like a green tail to me. Also, it was approximately 2' long.
