    Watching this video reminded me of a time when i was about 7ish? Some of my cousins came over and we were sword fighting with sticks. Naturally my stick broke and i went to pick up a new one. I was so close to grabbing it when I noticed it move slightly, and thats when I saw my first copperhead lol

    I have a crazy story
    So one time I was being babysat by my sister (I was around 5 or 6) because my parents were doing anniversary things so anyways I was being bad and my sister was mad so I ran outside I didn’t know where to go so I ran behind our utility shed (behind the utility shed never got mowed so the grass was really high) then my sister found me so I backed up then I heard a loud hissing and turned around a huge rattlesnake was behind me right as it striked my sister grabbed me and pulled me back
    Scariest experience of my life I would’ve died because I was so small

    @BraveWilderness You should head up to the Catskill mountains in upstate NY. There's a timber rattler sanctuary and much to my dismay, I always seem to find their hiding spots.

    I live in a very rural area in Georgia and just recently we’ve started seeing a lot of copperhead snakes which is really bad because I have younger siblings who are very curious is there way to get rid of them or at least avoid them so the little kids don’t get hurt

    To see if it's venomous or not, you really need to get a good look at it's sub-caudal scales to see if it's divided or undivided, ventral scale patterns just aren't reliable enough with your life might be at risk...

    i wonder if animals think humans like we think of aliens. you always hear about alien abductions where the alien scoops up a human, does stuff to it, and drops it back where they found it. this dude just did that to the snake. it was a human abduction.
