I apologize for this posting but we don't see many snakes here. This one is on the road and is no longer among its slithering brethern. It is approximately 2' in length. Body is gray/tan. Markings down the back are rounded rectangular areas edged in black. Smaller similar markings are on the sides. The head appears to be rounded.
The area behind the road is wooded with swampy areas.
Once again, I apologize for posting pictures of a dead creature but my husband did some sleuthing on his own and has pretty much decided this is a copperhead. I told him we needed an official identification!
