Found this guy crossing the road yesterday and jumped out of the truck to snap a pic before he went into the storm drain. Can anyone ID what type of snake this is?

That triangular head kept me from getting too close and it was pretty agitated when I approached to take a pic. It never tried to get away from me either.

I agree, I've never seen one colored like that, but I would assume its a cottonmouth.

Agreed...... It could be a color mutation or even a hybrid with a copper head.

That helps give it away.....my first thought is cottonmouth too but the color scheme, and moreover the pattern isn't quite right, though there are tons of variations,got a black and pink one one day.....but the hourglass markings were more well defined.


Im anxious to see what the forum comes up with!

Water Moccasin or possibly a Copper Moccasin. Copperheads and Cottonmouth's can crossbreed..

Okay...the innanet is a wonderful thing!

Its a Broad Banded water snake...not venomous, as I thought. Built to mimic moccasins....and it works!!! laugh
