These are NOT Copperheads!
http://www.RustyJohnson.tv These are not Copperheads these are baby Black Rats snakes. My entire life I would see people kill these type of snakes and since it was not a gater snake or black they "Thought it was a Copperhead" Always a certain death came soon after. They turn black at about 2-3 years old. Black rat snakes are considered one of the most beneficial snakes and can live up to 20 years and they eat mice, rats, chipmunks, rabbits, other small rodents, birds and eggs.
