Copperhead Rehomed

The doitandhow headquarters was recently visited by a copperhead snake. Although beautiful, they are also dangerous as they are venomous. We could tell it was a copperhead by the way it had Hershey kiss shapes down the sides of it. We were able to rehome it into an abandoned field after we safely captured it.
