Hi folks. Would you please try to identify these 2 snakes that my brother found on a recent hike. I don't have any more info or pics so it might be tough. I have my opinion but I want to get your's. Thanks
Not only are those copperheads, but you can see in the first pic that at least the one is gravid. (pregnant) If you go back later in the summer depending where this location is, you will get to see little coppers with lime green tails basking with the mothers, that will last a couple days till she leads them underground. I spend my summmers assessing Timber Rattlesnakes Sites in Pa and once in a while the timbers and coppers are gestating together. It gives great photo opportunities.
