Copperheads! Who, What, Why, When, and Where?


Who, What, Why, When, and Where?

Where do copperheads hide at your house? What do copperheads like to eat? When should you expect to see copperheads? Who will copperheads bite? Why are copperheads good snakes?

Copperheads, shyly and patiently waiting for their next meal camouflaged amongst the leaf litter, invoke fear, hysteria, and violence amongst humans. Feasting on insects, lizards, and mice amongst other animals, they freeze when discovered by humans but when stepped on they account for half of all snake bites in America!

Join Talena Chavis, Wildlife Damage Control Agent and owner of NC Snake Catcher for a presentation on North Carolina’s most notorious snake!
