Urban Legends Reference Pages: Potted Snakes (644 words)
It isn't unusual for snakes (venomous or otherwise) to occasionally turn up in consumer products and packaging (or in the stores that sell them), particularly at outlets that vend imported produce or gardening and nursery supplies (although sometimes such discoveries are more likely attributable to pranksters than to Mother Nature).
However, the small snakes depicted in these photographs don't bear the distinctive rust-colored hourglass markings or lemon yellow tails of baby copperheads; they're members of some other small, relatively harmless species that have been misidentified.
Also, baby copperheads could not have come from "eggs in the holes of the cardboard" that "hatched later," as copperheads, like many species of venomous snakes, produce eggs that develop and hatch inside the mother's body until the young are expelled live (i.e., ovoviparous).
Young Naturalists: Snakes: Minnesota Conservation Volunteer: Minnesota DNR (987 words)
The baby snakes are born in August or September.
Baby snakes live on their own after they are born or hatch.
Because snakes are cold-blooded and do not produce their own body heat, they don't need to eat as often as warm-blooded mammals or birds must.
