Although it is rather commonly supposed that the venomous copperhead snake (left) inhabits the woods of Michigan, Irving G. Reimann, newly appointed prefect at the University Museum, points out that there is no authentic report of this species in the state. It is often confused, he relates, with the non-poisonous Michigan milksnake (right) which resembles it except in color. The copperhead is mottled brown and copper, while the milksnake is mottled mahogany and cream-colored. New specimens of both snakes are included in the University Museum exhibits which are presently undergoing an extensive replanning and expansion.
