Default Let's play " Find the Cottonmouth"

Sorry Justin, didn't mean to muddy up your thread. Hopefully some members have had their coffee by now

I pulled these pics off the web. I'm no snake expert by any means, and learn how to better identify them from folks who do.

First person to pick the killers out....I'll buy ya a cup of coffee....via paypal

Experts....y'all give the class a chance!

Anywho.....can y'all pick out the venomous snakes in set? They are numbered. Here we go!

A couple of them would be having a bad day because they look like a moccasin and they will die because of it. I can determine what they are later. It also depends where they are located as to how quick they die. I hate snakes....

4,5, & 6. The non-hooded eyes and vertical bars on the jaws of the others are what I used to ID them as non-venmous water snakes.

Late to the party but I had 4 and 6, 5 I wasn’t sure about. Feel like I know snakes well enough to be safe around them. Do have to admit though There are some similarities between a few species of water snakes and a moccasin. But if in doubt.... off with his head.

Still believe It is a moccasin on the other thread.
