The ones on the Outer Banks are really striking (no pun intended). Really nice patterns.

Wow this is a beautiful cottonmouth! I have never seen one so big and still have those more juvenile type colors. I hope to see one like this some day :)

I've only ever seen one that was this caramel color and unfortunately it was deceased. This is one beautiful snake!

Terrific spotting Meghan! That one looks really thick, and I like the dark yellow coloring. I've never seen a cottonmouth quite like that. Thanks for sharing!
