Is this a juvenile copperhead? I found it in the rose bushes and almost beheaded it, but then I was worried about this karma thing y’all talk about. I really think it is a brown snake, but I dunno!

Diamondback banded copperrattlemoccasin for sure. Very venomous and dangerous, especially to pets and the ELDERLY. Note the shape of the head. Proceed with caution

Looks like a juvenile Ashara snake... Look closely at the head and if it's only got "one eye", back off slowly and get away from that thing... It will swell up 10X it's size if it gets in front of a woman!!

If you behead that thing; it'll just grow back; run away while you can! You now have something to tell your grandkids about; and indians will write songs about you and dance around campfires for many moons to come!!!

No way I believe the size of that thing. Should have put a tape measure on it. You zoomed in just to make it fill up the whole frame. I don't know where SaltwaterSlick gets his 10x from

Well, just do a little Biblical research on what an Ashera pole is, I think that'll clear things up quite a bit...

Don't kill it. I will come get it. I need to make sure you don't have any more of those. If you have anymore, I will remove them for a small fee, you won't have to worry about them for a while. I will go release them into the water. I have a special rig, for releasing them into the water one at a time.
