Getting his sun on
Hey, I think it looks more like Agkistrodon piscivorus (cottonmouth) rather than A. contortrix (copperhead). They're related so the patterns kind of do look similar, but I think that the markings here are too dark for a copperhead. I've seen some young cottonmouths with light patterns like this one. Without the head in the photo though, it is kind of hard to be sure. But that's my 2 cents.
Thought so I'm having a herpetologist at university of Arkansas at little rock confirm it tomorrow. Can the authorities on this app confirm it?
Marking sure match a Southern CopperheadAgkistrodon contortrix contortrix But will need confirmation.
