Snake Anyone

Post by Admin on Sun May 12, 2013 10:01 am

This is why you need to be careful around pond areas. Mowing this morning this guy scared the living crap out of me for the second time in two weeks, needless to say he will not do it again. A 22 cal rifle said so. Now I'm not really up on snakes but my guess would be this is some type of water moccasin

Could be.
I've found all the water snake species coloration's to be similar down here, due to habitat camo adaptation and mimicry. Cotton mouths are extremely aggressive when provoked, and its head shape is only a smidge more of the viper-esque, triangular shaped compared to other water snakes, when relaxed.

Check its toofeses, to be sure. affraid

I'm not getting near it's toofeses Laughing I don't mind the Black snakes but the Pigmy Rattlers and Moccasins I can do without. Seems like the Moccasins have just all of a sudden started coming out, guess it's just that time of year.
