    What kind of snake is this?

    I was out walking the girls and ran across this guy. It was getting dark and since I had them, I couldn't really investigate. At first I thought it was a copperhead, but I've never seen one of those stand up like this. Bad pics, but I couldn't get closer. When I look at these, it looks like a rattler of some sort. It wasn't rattling when we walked by it.

    Any ideas?

    Hmmm, to me:
    Not enough brown to be a copperhead.
    Not enough white to be a cottonmouth.
    No rattle, so not a rattle snake.
    Definitely not a coral snake!

    Well, I can't tell ya what it is, but I'm 99.99% sure it's not a venomous snake. ANY snake bite though is nasty, their teeth point to the rear of their mouth and you end up physically tearing yourself out of their mouth...been there! Bob

    Copperhead. Those "dumb bell" markings across the back are pretty much conclusive in my mind.

    copperhead; dumbell markings - Google Search
