The northern copperhead, Agkistrodon contortrix, is found in southern and eastern Ohio. It grows to between two and three feet long and can be copper, orange, or pink in color. The snake camouflages itself in the leaves, where it waits to catch its prey of rodents, birds, and frogs. The copperhead is venomous. Although it generally will not attack humans unless provoked, a large number of people are bitten by stepping on the snake.
