Northern Copperhead Snakes


Northern copperheads can be found in forested hillsides and wetlands, and will even occupy wood or sawdust piles from the Eastern Shore west to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Most often, hikers find them on terrain with rocky outcroppings. And the northern copperhead delivers its toxins quickly and painfully, so many people believe the copperhead to be very deadly.  But, they are not really deadly at all.
