ABSTRACT
Copperhead, a poisonous snake related to the rattlesnake and the water moccasin. It is named for the coppery-red color of its head. The copperhead is about three feet (90 cm) long. Below each eye is a heat-sensing pit, which helps the snake locate prey. Copperheads feed on small rodents and birds, frogs, and insects. The female bears 1 to 14 live young, in late summer. The range of the copperhead is an area extending southwest-ward from Massachusetts to south-central Texas and northern Mexico. The copperhead is found mostly on rocky, wooded hillsides and along the edges of swamps and streams.
