Cottonmouths are hard to identify correctly unless you ABSOLUTELY
know what you're looking for unless you get close enough to them to
see the eyes and heat pits. ... from a distance they could be a Brown
Watersnake. They mimic Cottonmouths and the pattern is almost identical.
Also, if you get close enough, the Cottonmouth will almost always curl up
and open it's mouth and show the white mouth without striking to warn
preditors to back off.

I'll see if I can find a good picture or two

Default Re: Damn a slimy Cottonmouth Snake!

According to what part of the souteast you are in, the color of a
Water moccasin will vary from light brown with the pattern VERY
visible, to very dark brown to almost Black with the pattern hard to see.

This is generally what Cottonmouths will look like around the Midlands



DEFENSIVE POSTURE:




This is a Brown Watersnake... Very common in the State of SC
and often mistaken for a Water Moccasin



Brown watersnakes will flatten their head and neck when frightened
or startled and they are very aggresive snakes. They can look
almost identical to the Cottonmouth when angry. ... the one very
noticable difference from a distance is there is a large band that will
extend from the Cottonmouth's eyes, back towards the venom gands.

ALSO,
there are two or three other common watersnakes that have similar
markings, only broken patterns...if someone is frightened of snakes
it's hard to distinguish them though without getting closer to the snake.

Here's a picture showing the wide dark band from the eyes back
down it's head. .. Watersnakes don't have that pattern on the
head.

Yes! Both looked like the top snake... Copperhead?

I went back fishing this evening, and one of the guys out there said they have had a couple of Copperheads in their yard.
