Agkistrodon contortrix mokasen
As implied by the name, its head has a copper tone to it.
Spotted in Strouds Run State Park, Athens, Ohio.
It has some good camouflage: I didn't notice it until I was standing about four feet away.
That was actually my first time at Strouds, so I got pretty lucky!
I've never seen copperheads at strouds, nice find! I'll have to keep an eye out next time I jump in the water.
Nice color and great spotting.
wow! look at that copper-colored head!
