Cottonmouth

Discussion in 'Reptile Reference Photos' started by eddieb, Oct 23, 2008.

  1. I must have stepped over this guy while I was looking up into some trees along the field road while I was trying to photograph some birds.
    When I turned around to start back the way I had come there he was about 10ft away between me and my truck.
    He had his mouth open the whole time I was shooting.

    as the pics went on, I would agree with the cottonmouth, and one getting POed at that... love that threat display...
     
  6. Re: Granddaddy Copperhead

    I stand corrected! I guess that's why I don't do reptiles. I do know it scared me almost to death! Thanks for the correction though.
    I corrected my original post for those that may be seaching for Cottonmouth reference photos.

    I suspect its a pregnant female and cottonmouths will display their mouths as a warning. She was just chilling, warming up the babies inside. they are ovoviviparous., live birth.

    Every cottonmouth ive ever seen has had its mouth open like that, they dont like humans at all.
