Snake Man theme song

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.


Copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix)

The Copperhead gets its name from the coppery color on the top of its head. The copperhead is responsible for most of the venomous snake bites in the Southeastern U.S. Fortunately, they are not aggressive. Most bites occur as a person attepmts to kill or catch a snake. Leaving this snake alone is the best decision. For information on how to reduce snake populations on your property read our "Guide to a Snake Free Yard".  The copperheads pattern is very distinct with crossbands that resemble an hourglass when observed from above and hershey kisses when seen from the side. Some non-venomous water snakes and young cottonmouths are often mistaken for copperheads. Copperheads  have live birth and the juveniles look identical to the adults except for a brightly colored yellow/ green tail that it uses as a lure to attract its prey.

Notice the yellow tail of this juvenile copperhead. This snake uses its decorated tail as a lure in order to catch frogs and lizards. As the snake matures, the tail color fades to dark brown or black and is no longer used as a lure.
