Copperheads in the Sourlands

Oct 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5

The Northern Copperhead is a reptile of surprising docility, beauty, and complexity, despite its reputation for aggression and perniciousness. It is one of two venomous snakes found in New Jersey (the other being the Timber Rattlesnake), both of which are imperiled in the state. This presentation will highlight an ongoing radio-tracking study of Northern Copperheads taking place in the Sourlands of central New Jersey. Their astonishingly cryptic pattern and behavior render them nearly invisible among the leaf litter on the forest floor, making their life histories difficult to study. Radio telemetry has allowed individual snakes to be tracked over multiple seasons, and has revealed a great deal about these forest-dwelling pitvipers.
