Agkistrodon contortrix Photo by Lisa Powers Description: Males are larger than females. Juvenile copperheads have a sulfur yellow tail.
The body is typically the color of dead leaves of brown or orange and has chestnut brown cross-bands that are wide on the sides and narrow at the backbone. Most bands are connected though some will be unconnected. Sometimes the body has more grey than brown or orange. The head is coppery-red and triangular, or heart-shaped, and is darker above the eye than below.
Copperheads have a pair of fangs that inject venom when they bite, and even newborn copperheads can give a venomous bite. The snake is a pit viper, like our other venomous snakes in Tennessee, and has the characteristic heat-sensing pit present between the eye and nasal cavities; and the eye has a vertical pupil that may expand to round when fully opened.
In most of its range the copperhead favors deciduous forest and mixed woodlands.
They are often associated with rock outcroppings and ledges, but are also found in low-lying swampy regions. It can also be found in pine forests. Favorite hiding places include stone walls, sawdust, garden mulch or compost piles, and under decaying stumps, in wood piles, under abandoned building debris, and under large flat stones.
Copperhead snakes are born alive, and are able to reproduce at three to four years of age. Copperhead snakes can mate in both fall and spring.
If they mate in fall, the eggs will not be fertilized until the spring, as the females gestate during the summer.
They are capable of breeding every year, and give birth to live young from late summer to early fall. As few as 2 or as many as 18 young are produced, but the typical litter size is young. The young are 8 to 10 inches long at birth and stay with the mother for only a few days.
They are fully as venomous as the adults when born. It is thought the juvenile yellow tail is used as a lure to attract small prey for the youngster.
Up to 60 percent of the females in a population may carry young in a year.
Several female Copperheads may gather in specific areas prior to giving birth. Copperhead snakes are social and over winter in dens. Dens are most often in rocky hillsides with southern or eastern exposure to the sun.
These "snake dens" will be returned to year after year and may contain a large number of snakes, including timber rattlesnakes and gray ratsnakes.
The wintering site is some distance from summer feeding grounds, requiring the snakes to migrate. In October the Copperhead retreats to its underground den to hibernate until late February or early March.
Copperheads may live eighteen years in the wild and more than twenty five years in captivity. Copperheads have many predators and are most vulnerable when young.
Multiple snake taxa, including kingsnakes, racers, and cottonmouths prey on copperheads.COOKEVILLE — Funeral services for Tony Curtis Head, 59, of Buffalo Valley, will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov.
