Copperhead snakes


There are FOUR of them in this photo.  If you only see two or three, they win.

Via the Mildly-Interesting subreddit.

  1. It took a bit of looking, but I eventually found all four. Amazing how well concealed they are, isn't it?

    1. Maybe I should repost it next April 1, changing the FOUR to FIVE...

  4. For the time it took me, yeah, snakes win. Snakes always win.

  5. I came here to say the same thing. The whole time I was looking for the fourth, I was thinking "I've already lost."

  6. These are newborn, showing the yellow tail.

  7. My mom used to talk about catching copperheads when she was a little girl in rural New York. Not sure if she was incredibly nuts or incredibly brave -- but she lived until nearly 80, so I guess she was also incredibly good at spotting them!

  8. Copperheads are not aggressive unless provoked. I once unwittingly ate lunch next to one (sharing a log on a trail) and it wasn't bother by me. Your comments about them "winning" just feeds the public misperception that there is a 2-way war going on with the snake world.

    1. By "winning" I meant they escape predation from humans.

  9. I grew up with these living nearby. Never had a problem until just now. I'm in deep doo doo.

  10. Somebody help me, please. Is the fourth one as visible as the first three? Or is it like, just a head?

  11. No, the one at the bottom right corner is the 3rd one. Where's the 4th?

    BTW, just spotting one means THEY lose. I'd back off from the tree as fast as my legs could carry me.

    1. A helpful commenter on that Reddit page posted the solution here (but future readers, try to find them yourself first!):

    2. (I mean, otherwise you'll miss out on the fun... enfanta's note below is a more subtle hint)

  12. If you want to know where all the snakes are, copy and paste this into a word document. Search and replace & with nothing. Or pick your way through it. :)
