I think the snake is the real bad boy- water moccasin. I know there is a water snake that looks similar but what do y’all think?



It was a different world when we were boys and girls....

I think you have to have 500 post to post a pic.

I copied the link over to the Off Topic section. There are some experts over there. We should have a positive ID shortly.

Hard to see the head for absolute confirmation, but it sure looks like a cottonmouth moccasin to me.

It could be mr Bad but hard to say definitely without a good head shot.He could be a banded water snake.

Grab it in the middle, after it bites you on the hand, look to see if there are 2 major holes or a bunch of small ones. 2 Holes = Bad Many = Good....

Looks too long and skinny to be a cottonmouth.

Looks like a moccasin. Spent a lot of time roaming the creeks when I was young, saw lots of moccasins but every now and then I'd run across what we called a spread nanner (hognose) snake. I think they kind of resembled a moccasin but a much flatter head.



Fish On!
