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 want to know why do these water snakes and other snake come in my backyard and try to bite me even though I don't mess with it

We had a young broadbanded water snake in our garden last weekend. I wasn't sure what it was at first. As it slithered into the mulch to blend in, I made sure it didn't have a rattle. I sent a picture to my dad and he said it looked like a moccasin. He wanted me to kill it, but as I didn't think it was a moccasin, I didn't. It was the wrong head shape for a moccasin. It went on its way to where it wanted to go. He wanted away from us.

No mater where I've lived we have had cotton mouths around. I remember when I was probably about 8 or so I found one while fishing and another one a year Before that while walking with my sister. The one I found while fishing was a baby one. Started messing with it with the tip of my pole and eventually got it to leave. The other one was much older and was already agitated by the time we came across it. I knew what they where at the time but other than shooing the smaller one away I didn't really do anything to them

How far is a safe distance? 200 feet? 300 feet? Oh! I know how about i'm never getting close to this thing.

Poor Mr.Water Snake. He has no friends because of stereotyping. Maybe he is a snake but doesn't identify as a poisonous. Ever heard of "Don't judge a book by its cover " Geez people. 🙄🙄😂😂

Thanks cyute Peterson
Me and my friend were in the woods and I found a coulorful snake and I told my friend not to touch it because it is venomous and I learned that from you and we were safe at the end!
If I see either one, all I can tell him is that he should have been something besides a snake. I'm not going to leave him there to bite next person who comes along.
Damn leave Orochimaru alone

I had a chance to meet one last year, I didn't bother to think if it was venomous or neither cuz somehow I found myself back on my seat in the touring bus that fast.

The water snake looked like it wanted to be bff's and maybe go live with you. The venomous snake did not look so friendly.
