You said you deal with copperheads alot. What is thier temperment? Me and my herping friend were debating the temperment of the copperhead and comparing it to the water moccasin, seeing which was more aggressive.
I had thought the copperheads were rather placid, and the water moccasins to be somewhat bitey. Some scientist are saying the opposite, and my friend aggress. We do not deal with them since we live in Ca. Are the copperheads a tough customer to deal with when handling? (and when I say handling, I mean with a snake snake and proper precautions)
