Im sittin up here at work, falling asleep on my keyboard. Then the breakfast lady screams bloody murder and I hear a loud thud. She is super old, like 103...well not quite, but old. I run in there and she is on the counter. She said a snake went under the fridge.

I work less than a quarter mile from a river, so copperheads and cottonmouths arent uncommon. Instead of sticking my face down there to see that it was a 3ft copperhead, and watching it bite me in the eye or something...I just move the fridge....hoping it doesnt come out and get me in the leg...legs better than my head ....

So I move the fridge and it isnt big, but boy was it fierce. As soon as it saw me, it came right at me, striking and showing off his bright red underbelly. At only 4.5-5 inches long and about as thick as a number 2 pencil, he had a serious case of little guy syndrome.

I dont know if I am going to keep him...letting him go this close to winter would be certain death. Too bad I dont have any cages anymore...Here are some pics...not actually him...but what he looks like.

his ring looks almost exactly like this one except more redish.

Do you have a small aquarium or anything?

Nah, I sold all my aquariums/terrariums a long time ago...but I can probably find something cheap today on craigslist.

That helped a lot. was just going to buy it some crickets...apparently it eats worms...Even more of a shocker...they only get to about 12 inches...so he isnt the baby I thought....about halfway full grown.
