Artist's Description

Florida cottonmouth.
Agkistrodon piscivorus conanti.
Near Blackwater Creek; Lake county, Florida.
03 January 2007.
Nikon D70s.

Horrifically misunderstood and abused by most people on the peninsula, the Florida cottonmouth is a beautiful and vital component of Floridian ecology. These venomous pit vipers are often believed to aggressively “chase” after people. I’ve never seen this happen in the wild. Quite the contrary. They’ll typically try to avoid people and when cornered on land, they’ll usually wrap up into a defensive coil position, sometimes flashing their white-cottony mouths as a warning. Respect the snake’s space and there won’t be a problem.
