Bert, it looks like he wants u to throw him a mouse. I hate it when vipers start begging for food on the walkways.

This two foot long fellow had his head back so far, his fangs were very noticable.

I was on an FTF run down in Palacios today, and I came across this little cache guardian. He was cute....so cute they even put out a sign just for him. :)

Now another thing to worry about in tall grass besides just snakes.

Definitely! I've heard that they are not normally dangerous but very unpredictable. Best to be cautious!

What is that? A Cottonmouth? I should probably know this after putting out that snake series. LOL :uglystupid2:

Does not appear to be a cottonmouth.  A cottonmouth will have a horizontal black stripe behind the eye, running from the eye to the neck.

 

For a cottonmouth example, go back to the March 1, 2014 post by Baytown Bert, in this thread.

Man, there's all manner of stuff going on in this photo Bert! Some nice Apple Snail eggs, which is a shame as I think they are considered quite invasive, brought in from the aquarium world. Couldn't help noticing some other stuff on the rock too.Heck, there's probably a message from the Beatles in there somewhere dating back to the 1969! ;)
