Slither In Style

Taking his name quite literally, Cody the Copperhead Snake dons a copper penny hat to bring an old wives' tale--keeping pennies in the garden keeps your hydrangeas blue and the slugs out--to life. Artist Fred Conlon artfully hand crafts each snake from recycled steel and upcycled pennies and positions the tail in a tight springed coil, ready to strike. The steel design weathers over time, lending character and personality to your garden or backyard. Handmade in Salt Lake City, Utah.

        This copperhead is so adorable. I gave one to a friend for Christmas and was then so jealous of it that I purchased a second one just for me.
