Notes

I found this intergrade Copperhead (Northern/Southern)crossing a frontage road right off of Interstate 85. It was heading right for the interstate, so I caught it and released it in an abandoned junkyard on the other side of the interstate. She should be able to find plenty of food and some male copperheads in this area! :)It always feels good to save a snake from almost certain death on the roadways.
