Water moccasin, Cotton mouth, Viper

Agkistrodon piscivorus


A semiaquatic venomous snake that will stand its ground when confronted. Personally, I've seen them several times in the wild and never really had a problem with them. Just watch your step.


These snakes are found in creeks, swamps and marshes.
