Water Moccasin

Agkistrodon piscivorus


Water Moccasin a.k.a. Cottonmouth. Easily 5' long, the longest I have ever seen. Width as wise as my arm.


Wetland area near large body of water.


Would have loved to have gotten a closer picture, but was unable to do so. Great story involving this snake 5 minutes after the picture. Come by N.B. Forrest State Park to hear it, been telling it to all the visitors I have come across today.
