Warning

 

Mom wanted us to warn you all.....

Its that time of year again! Copperhead tips:
1) If an adult bites you, you may only get a dry bite.
2) if you smell cucumber for no reason, you are within
striking distance of a copperhead and you have already
disturbed him. 3) Juveniles often have a yellow tip on the tail.
4) Possums eat copperheads, so leave the possums alone.
5) other snakes such as rat snakes compete with
copperheads for food, King snakes eat copperheads, so
dont kill other snakes. they are harmless, leave them be.
learn to identify all snakes in your area.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to all the furbabes. ♥
