    Awesome photos. I miss the abundance of reptiles and amphibians in the South. Seeing that pissed off cottonmouth really takes me back to childhood..

    Cottonmouths are one of my favorite native snakes. While they're not flashy or even particularly attractive looking, they sure are fun to catch ! In all my years of playing around with them, I've never seen one in a good mood !

    I think I can say that about most of the water snakes I've come across (as long as non-water snakes that live in/around water are excluded - like Mud & Swamp snakes)
    All the best,
