A friend saw this one yesterday....bad, huh?
I have a friend who says,
" there's only two kinds of snakes in this world, all those that rattle, and the rest are COBRAS "
If its on the ground its a Rattlesnake! If its in the water its a Water Moccassin!
You've messed me up now. Im at the lake and every leaf in the water is going to be a snake head.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.

This is what I came across a couple weeks ago while out walking - 3 foot canebrake rattler. First photo before he was shot. Close up after.
The first picture is not really sharp but from the head and lack of markings, I would say it was a Cottonmouth and I'm more afraid of them than any other snake in the US other than possibly a Mojave rattler.

Yes, I think it's a cottonmouth too. I know it's not a clear photo, but I think she was too close considering what it is. The opacity over the eyes? Think it is in the process of shedding, that would explain the dullness of the scales?
Good friends are hard to find. Enjoy every moment you have with them.
"You know Norm, the common water moccasin, or better know as a cotton mouth, is one of the most dangerous snakes in these United States. It however is trumped by the African Black Mamba, which can kill a horse with one bite."

Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
