    Cotton Mouth (Graphic)

    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 time to go get the shotgun, so I had to make do with what I had on me. The two shots by the head were with the .380.

    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.

    That's no pit viper.
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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..."

    For me:
    SNAKE=BANG

    Good job!

    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.
