As we read on, we learned that "Copperheads feed on mice, small birds, lizards, snakes, amphibians and insects, especially cicadas."
Whew! They don’t eat humans!
"Baby copperheads have a bright yellow tail that is used to lure small prey animals to their demise. A female copperhead lays 1-14 eggs in the months of August, September and October (Behler, 1979).”
So, if you’re trekking down Georgia’s breathtaking trails, beware of the bustling under the leaves. It just may be a copperhead!
