Northern Copperhead

Agkistrodon contortix mokeson

Many snake species, including the Northern copperhead, den up in the winter to avoid the cold temperatures. In many cases, a den provides refuge for a large number of snakes. In spring, the snakes emerge and disperse to lead their solitary lives as predators during warmer weather.
