Get a room!

amorous-copperheads

My wife thought she had found one very long copperhead when she went out to water her kale seedlings, but it turned out to be an amorous pair. According to Reptiles of North Carolina by Palmer and Braswell (University of North Carolina Press), copperheads have been found mating in April and September, so this seems quite late in the year.

  1. I hope you don’t wind up with a copperhead invasion in the next several months! The little ones are prone to inject more venom than the adults, I’m told.
