Finding The First Copperhead Snakes of the Year with NKFherping and!

Found the first baby Copperhead snakes of the year. A few more snakey outings this week! Things are finally warming up, and spring is well on the way here in Georgia! The eastern copperhead snakjes (Agkistrodon contortrix),[3] also known as the copperhead, is a species of venomous snake, a pit viperendemic to eastern North America; it is a member of the subfamily Crotalinae in the family Viperidae. Its generic name is derived from the Greek words ancistro (hooked) and odon (tooth), or fishhook.[4] The trivial name, or specific epithet, comes from the Latin contortus (twisted, intricate, complex), which is usually interpreted to reference the distorted pattern of darker bands across the snake’s back, which are broad at the lateral base, but “pinched” into narrow hourglass shapes in the middle at the vertebral area.[5][6] Five subspecies have been recognized in the past,[7] but recent genetic analysis shows that A c. contorix and two of the subspecies are monotypic, while Agkistrodon laticinctus (formerly Agkistrodon contortrix laticinctus) and the fifth subspecies are a single distinct species.
