#NotesFromTheRiver – Cottonmouth!


Young Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin

Today’s #NotesFromTheRiver post will tell you the easiest way to identify the Florida subspecies of this much-maligned snake, along with a few other interesting tidbits that I suspect will be news to some of you. Hope you’ll take a look, even if you aren’t a snake lover, like I am. It pays to know some of this stuff. 🙂 And please, feel free to share far and wide.

    • You did, of course, see the wide cheek stripe that differentiates them from harmless watersnakes, right? 🙂 Just checkin’, since that’s an important part of this post. 😉 And yep, cornered in a pool, they’d be very defensive, especially if you were trying to remove them. (A wee bit different than aggression, wherein something is after you for no reason.) But I’m with you, I wouldn’t want to find them in my swimming pool or spa. A lot of trouble to remove them safely. There are professionals who will come do that, though, and relocate them to where they belong.
