I usually don't care for the idea of hybrids much, but I have to admit that's a very interesting cross indeed. How old is the snake? So no rattle developed, but do you think that will time it will try to form? I'm guessing it won't since you said the little guy didn't even come out with a button. Anyway, very interesting indeed. I'd like to see the other pics, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Very, very interesting indeed. When you get some reports back on it's venom makeup, I know I'd be interested to hear about them. There's a supposedly pretty big gap between copperhead and timber venom, so there's no telling what that little guy came out with.
