Thanks! I see cottonmouths more than all of our other venomous species combined. They are always pretty chill, but they do have quite an intimidating look about them!

Great shot! What a beautiful yet intimidatingly fierce snake! Good size.

Thanks everyone! MickGrant, they are venomous, but they are not extremely dangerous. I believe a lot of people that get bitten don't even get antivenin... not that I would suggest it, but it's expensive stuff!!
