Cotton Mouth (Graphic)
This is a discussion on Cotton Mouth (Graphic) within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Shot the snake this past evening with the PM9 and the P380. Both guns were loaded with Hornady Critical Defense ammo. I didn't have enough ...

Round eyes indicate that it is probably a water snake.

I think that you killed one of those dangerous garter snakes...

That is not a cottonmouth or even poisonous you murderer.....LOL
seriously, snakes like that are your friend man. Let them be, they do way more good than harm.
If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

If I remember my snakes that's a Pilot Black snake, notice the keeled scales.

Definitely "NOT" a Cotton Mouth!
The round pupils, missing "pits" and lack of the "white" lining of it's mouth (that gives the "CottonMouth" it's name), tells me this is just a water snake.
However, it is a common mistake to mis-identify this species.

a poisonous snake would have a larger head than its body to accommodate for venom glands.

Well one thing for sure, while the debate of identity goes on, this one will neither bite anybody to death nor scare anybody to death. LOL!

Good shooting man I dont think the species is endangered

That wasn't a poisonous snake:
Round eyes= Not poisonous
Cat-like eyes= Bad, poisonous
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..."

Here's a cottonmouth:
The pattern can sometimes look as rust colored & as well defined as a copperhead. They can also have a less distinct pattern & be much darker all over.

I hope he was at least a good meal...
BTW...that doesn't look like any cotton mouth I've ever run into...and I ran into a lot in the south.

Ouch....not a cottonmouth. Get a good lawyer, cuz his family is gonna drag you into civil court with a wrongful death suit. LOL I'm on your side though. As much as I love all animals...if a snake is not positively ID'd as NOT poisonous, ka-blooooeyy!
Does anyone know if snake shot will in any way harm or scar the rifled barrel of a pistol? I throw my PM9 in my bag when I mountain bike or go fishing, and i wouldnt mind having some snake shot in there. As long as firing off a few wont hurt the rifling of my barrel.

Nope, not at all. Shoot as much of it as you want.
