In early fall snakes are on the move. As the weather turns a little cooler many snakes come out to warm in the sun, on rocks or the pavement. During the day non-poisonous and poisonous snakes are slithering about. A realiable Appalachian source, my Dad, always says that at night only the poisonous snakes are out. In the Appalachians that means copperheads and rattlesnakes. If you are out at night as the season changes, take care and watch out for those snakes!
