Snakes are our friends! And with friends like these who needs enemies?
After 17 years underground, millions of cicadas will emerge this spring in New Jersey. The insects are interesting to say the least, but don’t worry, they’re not dangerous to humans.
You’re going to see and hear cicadas probably everywhere you go, but you’ve been warned. According to Only In Your State, they are one of the copperhead snakes favorite food sources.
Luckily, copperheads are found only in the northern portion of New Jersey. The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey website revealed that it is one of the two venomous species of snake found in the state.

I'm really upset I won't be in New Jersey for the cicada emergence.— Bored is Sam (@BoredisSam) March 27, 2021
Like I go to New Jersey 3 times next month and they listed it as a “hot spot” for cicadas. I’m SICK.— paige (@omgyp) April 15, 2021
