    I once stepped on a rock a Copperhead was lounging under near a stream... I never want to get that close to a Copperhead again.

    Yeah Copperheads are pretty mean... I was in Virginia at the time in the Blue Ridge Mountains. A friend of mine experienced a Rattlesnake in an outhouse in Utah once... He said he was kind of surprised to see he wasn't alone while he was doing his business. He made it out without getting bit. Funny story, but it might not have been if things went differently. :lol:

    When I was 15, my best friend's dad use to capture snakes and sell them to Gatorland. Eventually he and I went with his dad and we were catching rattlesnakes, water moccasins, and a number of non-poisonous snakes as well.
