:Does anyone know if northern copperheads live in Watchung Reservation. I believe that most of it is in Mountainside/Scotch Plains. There are great rocks there for them, but I personally have never seen one (though I'm usually trout fishing and not herping). Has anyone seen these guys?
:I would love to hear about it!

At one time there was. When the reservations boundries were first drawn a study of its wildlife was undertaken in the many may years sinse then all but the most common and hardy species have disappeared. At one time the Watchung reservation was home to Bog, Wood and Spotted turtles, along with corn, milk, and yes some venomous species. In the past 15 years I have been an avid herper I have only seen garter snakes and in the way of turtles, only mud, snapper, painteds, and ferrel red ears. Every year fewer and fewer are around. Right now, any Reptile are downright rare there.
