    Sorry to all the herpetologist out there, that I might have offended with the misidentification. After looking at some pics, it doesn't look like a cotton mouth. Unfortunately I didn't have a field i.d. book on me at the time. However the snake did strike and its mouth was definitely white in color. I guess now I know thats not indicative of only a water moccasin. Nice to know, just a little too late for this guy.

    The only one you offended was the snake...

    Although I have a deep profound hate for all snakes.... I've still failed to see one to call out: "Here snakey snakey... let me check out your eyes before shooting you..."


    Good job!

    That was one ugly snake and I would have blasted him to kingdom come without checking his ID too. I kill 'em all.

    Many nonvenomous snakes will pose and strike when threatened. It's best to learn to tell quickly what a venomous snake looks like. This will prevent future episodes of running around shooting up everything in a panic over a big worm.

    I'm no expert, but in my experience if you find a cottonmouth you'll know it. He's gonna want to know what you are doing and he won't be afraid to come find out. Cottonmouths are very bold and aggressive.

    The snake is now a GOOD snake. Whatever it was may not hurt you but it can certainly make you hurt yourself......... and cause your wife a laundry problem.

    Yes sir! Quite tasty. Haven't had one in a few years, but the last one I had down near the southern tip of NC was quite tasty. Come to think of it, I don't think I've had a bad tasting snake.

    A dead snake is a good thing. Like Indy, there is no animal I fully have a lot of hatred more than the snake. Not only do they bite, they are just slithery. Makes my skin crawl. As for the pictures of the damage to the snake? Awesome!!!!!

    It's a Diamondheadedcopperbackedrattlemocisin. The only good snake is a DEAD snake. Well done.

    Another thing to look for in determining if a snake is venomous or not is besides the round pupils, and lack of "pits", locate the anus opening. Below the opening a venomous snake will have a single row of ventral scales, the same as above the opening. On a non-venomous snake, the scales turn into double rows, divided at the center. In the first picture, you can see the divided scale rows. This rule does not apply to Coral Snakes.

    I am not a snake opthamologist, proctologist or dermatologist and my eyes have quite a few years on them. With that said, if a snake is doing anything other than moving away from my location rather than trust my eyes or my lack of snake expertise I will act with extreme prejudice just to be on the side of safety.

    BTW It looks an awful lot like a hypo-melanistic Cottonmouth to me.

    I've misidentified before. I felt bad about it when I realized. I like having the good ones around.
