Northern Copperhead

Agkistrodon contortrix contortrix


The pattern is distinctly hourglass shaped, the copper-colored head and dark spots are prominent.


As the picture demonstrates it was found in a roadway between two wooded areas. This road has light traffic and my sighting was around 9:00 pm EST
