On this episode of Breaking Trail, Coyote is back in the swamp to show you the differences between a Water Moccasin and a Banded Water Snake! 

Easily confused for one another, these two snakes are worlds apart in terms of their danger factor toward humans. However in order to show you how to tell the deadly viper apart from the harmless Colubridae Coyote must catch one of each which is going to be a whole lot easier said, than done…good thing our wildlife biologist Mario Aldecoa is back in the field to help with the search! 

Get ready…this is Cottonmouth vs Water Snake!

I was at a camp, and I saw a snake that was like 5 inches long, and it was black in little bit of blue or green, it was a while ago, but I caught the snake, and after a while, I let it g, after I could tell it wasn't a poisonous, and then I let it go, it turned around and bit my shoe, then there were 2 little wholes in my shoe. lol

In sixth grade wrote a a three page report on the water moccasin (had to do animals native to my state of South Carolina). I have never let myself forget a detail of that damn report 😂 you could show me five snakes and I'll always be able to pick out a moccasin no doubt.

Why not talk about the verticals bars on he jaws for the water snake? That's identifies all harmless snakes.
We all know the venomous snake would win right

Coyote you always go crazy
I was about 10 Years old when me and a friend of mine Went to a creek. We saw a water snake and Freaked out cause we couldn't tell if it was a Cottonmouth or A water snake so I prodded it with a stick to make its leave. it swam off But it was about 5-6 Feet away... I'll never know what it was (I live in Houston, TX)
