Copperheads in your basement?

April 18, 2011 | Sherry Samuels

Spring is definitely here and it’s a great time to see the native wildlife awaken. It’s a chance to find some unexpected sights! Ranger Greg’s Blog is awesome, and if you want to see amazing photos of flora and fauna check out his blog. He’s been capturing signs of spring numerous times already.

Reptiles we haven’t seen in awhile start to come out. Last week Keepers helped move a copperhead off a path to safety. It reminded me of a call I got last year to help a friend of a friend get a “snake” out from under her dryer. When I arrived, I found two copperheads under her dryer. The photos aren’t great, but take a look. The first photo is of one of the snakes in a container. In the second photo, see if you can find one, or both, of the snakes slithering away to safety.
