It’s copperhead mating season. One of the snakes was spotted near the Mall this week.

It’s mating season for copperhead snakes, which means the snakes are traveling more than normal — and this week, the National Park Service spotted a northern copperhead near the Mall.

Officers snapped a picture of the snake wrapped around a chain-link fence Monday in East Potomac Park. Although infrequently seen at the Mall, copperheads — which are venomous, but rarely have fatal bites — are common in the Washington area, the Park Service said.
