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!

You ever think about taking a copperhead bite? It's mild enough it won't kill a dog.

I second him on the importance to identify snakes when coming across them, and not relying on photos for identification.. I work with wildlife in Australia and it is essential to know the different snake species here as there are sooo many venomous ones.
A Plus
good adventure
This guy is not scared of anything
Harrison Mealings
When the snake at the start bit the camera I jumped so hard
