    Last weekend I was down at Allansford for a family event. Luckily enough for me one of my mates was closeby, so we got in a solid 45 mins of herping in.
    We easily was half a dozen copperheads in under 10 mins, all basking on and around big piles of basalt boulders.

    However this one was found cruising around a swamy area.
