Notes

I found these two specimens while trying to find my first eastern diamondback. I did not find any Crotalus, but these two nice southern copperheads were a good find. Both were found in the same general area, about 15 minutes apart. The first one was found under some fallen tree bark and was very aggressive. The second one was on the surface and appeared to be postpartum.
