Are copperheads and coral snakes worth anything?

I've been seeing a few copperheads in the 20"-24" range and a few texas coral snakes lately. Is there a live market or taxidermy market for them? If so, whats a fair asking price?
Thanks

Worth more alive than dead

While I don't like to take snakes from habitat unless it is for a greater good (educational and scientific), most reptiles are worth more alive to collectors and breeders than dead. It is best to check State regulations before harvesting species. Texas requires a non-species permit to harvest, and a dealing permit to sell indigenous reptiles.
