Copperhead Snake

A copperhead snake (Agkistrodon contortris) blends into the surrounding terrain as it basks in the sun at Slippery Falls Scout Ranch near Tishomingo, OK. These vipers are dangerously poisonous. Though the bite is painful, it is rarely a threat to life. They range over most of the southeastern U.S. Imaged in June 2003.
