HOUSTON – It may not be the “prime” snake season but there is one type of snake you need to be aware of.

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife, venomous Copperheads have chestnut or reddish-brown crossbands on a lighter-colored body. These snakes are found in rocky areas and wooded bottomlands and are rare in dry areas.

“When you think about it they could be anywhere,” said Clint Pustejovsky, the “Snake Man”.

Pustejovsky says that Copperheads love cicadas which come out a lot in the summer.

“That’s their candy. That’s their favorite food,” he explained. “They’ll climb in trees to get to them and they do anything. They will crawl over your foot to get to one. If they have water, and they have cicadas, that is a happy snake, and it doesn’t matter if it’s 100 degrees outside.”

Residents in areas where these Copperheads tend to show up often, such as The Woodlands, are concerned about their pets and small children.

Amy Coffelt has two small dogs, Janice and Theo. They say they saw a snake in her yard and she is now taking extra steps to make sure she and her pets stay safe.

She hired a company to come out and survey her land to make sure there wasn’t anything a snake would want to eat such as rodents.
