Went to pull the dead blooms off the flowers for the wife out of one of the planters on the patio, noticed this stick that did not belong, about the time I recognized it the dog caught wind I guess and went nuts. Looks like a king but I gained some altitude as is broke for cover...right beside my hands...[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

Round eyes, he is not dangerous poison wise, maybe to someone who would hurt themselves getting away. They eat poisonous ones, so he can hang around.

I’d fix up a new 20 gallon aquarium with some driftwood, heated rock, a black light, set it on the coffee table or in the breakfast nook.
New house pet

Feed it those little white mice.


Bad ass

I'd burn the house down just for the chance to kill it. Kill it real good.

That doesn't look like a copperhead. The head isn't right. Might be a corn snake.

Lol.

Slaves get what they need. Free men get what they want.

Rehabilitation is way overrated.

Good call.
If my lousy meter reader didn't kill mine, I'd never have to set mouse traps again. Mine was a rescue from the middle of a road. He stuck around for many years and became a pet that had the whole yard and field to run.

I've owned a pair.
They are usually mellow and like to be left alone. Like most snakes, they'll bite defensively if picked up, but no big deal.
As long as everything is sealed up in your basement, he won't enter unless a mouse chews it's way in.
I'd introduce it to your family as a new pet that likes it's space and will protect the property from pests, copperheads and rattlers. Take pics for the scrapbook.
