I’m often called upon to determine whether a snake is venomous or not. Many times, the question is “Is this a copperhead?”
To help you brush up on your herpetological skills, I thought this copperhead identification test might be interesting.
I’ll tell you up front that there are 4 copperheads among the 25 test choices.
There are slight differences between Northern Copperhead and Southern Copperhead snakes but the body markings you’ll see are typical of both species.
I found value in seeing good photos of non-copperhead snakes you might also see.
How well did you score?
