Copperhead Monster size!

Agkistrodon contorix

Description:

(DOR)The scale in the photo is 6". There is about 6" that the photo doesn't show due to cropping size. This is the biggest copperhead found so far this year. If I check my notes, I think this one will be a chart topper for me.

Habitat:

Woodland/poccison

S Frazier, are you a mod for one of the missions?

Since you know the species please add in the scientific name, Agkistrodon contortrix, in the scientific name field reserved for that. In order that spottings are standard, please use name fields for common names and scientific names only, as appropriate. Spottings can be described in the description field. Thanks!

I would be comfy with 3'. A bit longer perhaps.
