Wow looks different than the ones i encountered in Loisiana, they were solid color dark brown to black, anyhow i went hiking and waded in this swamp area not thinking about the risks doing it alone, just by chance near by coasting towards me two fellas in a fan boat told me not to move, I thought crocks or gator...i was scared, but they said its much worse, a group of Water Moccasins were near me and they are very aggressive, they said there stories people be attacked by many at one time while in water...So I was stiff as the trees in the water...lol they shot off a rifle near them and they slithered away... Those guys were local tribes people out hunting for food of all types like snakes,crocks,frogs, snails and so on... I was lucky for them, they treated me to a BBQ gator..it was odd but memorable.. Moral- never do things in places you have no expertise at...anyways lovely picture. Ty
