These snakes are active during the day, and can be seen on the ground more than on trees.
These snakes are solitary creatures and only show up with other snakes during hibernation or when mating. When that happens hundred can appear in the den, or when mating into a ball.
They are rather docile, and they rarely bite even when handled. But rarely their bite can cause allergic reactions, so be careful when handling them.
It is illegal in Virginia to keep Wild Snakes as pets
