Animals Reptiles & Amphibians
Copperheads camouflage well in fallen leaves, where they lie in wait for prey items. They are a venomous snake and are responsible for most of the snakebites in Texas; luckily, bites are rarely fatal. Copperheads are ovoviviparous snakes. This means that the females retain the eggs within their bodies, and the babies hatch just before or at birth, being born in a membranous sac.
