Default Cottonmouth in Lexington, Ky

Here is a picture taken by my son, Vincent, at the Andover Golf Course in Lexington where he is assistant professional. It is the first cottonmouth I have actually seen a picture of here. I know they have them in Western Ky., but this is a new one for me. He is a big one too. Here is a picture:

A driver to the head would fix that snake.

I'd vote for a shotgun load to the head.

Wow....have not seen one that chunky since I trudged through the Dismal Swamp in North Carolina back in the early 90's.

I don't like cotton mouths. They are mean and dangerous. But they have a place in nature even though I don't like them. I'd still shoot it if I saw it in the field!!!!

I live across the Ohio River from Henderson, KY which is far Western KY. They could easily swim across the Ohio River when the River is low and slow. I bet we have some of them here in Southern IN where I live. I've not seen one hear yet but I'd bet we have some in this area. They just are not that predominate. We have copperheads and Timber Rattle Snakes along with coral snakes here.

I don't doubt that there are cottonmouths in Kentucky but any chance that might be a non venomous Northern Water Snake? They look confusingly the same especially when they flatten out when walked up on.. We used to catch them all day long as kids down at the "crick..

It could be a Northern......the bands look like it, but the head is shorter?....guess the only way to tell is poke at it and make it say "AHHHHHH" and look for that nice white inside an pointy teeth.

......good point though. Hard to tell with all the patterns of cottonmouths.....most of the ones I have seen were very dark and "greenish"....can't miss that mouth and hiss though.

Head looked too wide at the neck..we used to see alot growing up and got pretty discerning when it came to telling the difference between a harmless water snake and a dangerous moccasin...
