Got that snake I had for supper a while ago tanned and sort of stretched, might have to pull it a bit more. Just tonight, while closing up the chicken coop, almost stepped on another smaller one.

Meat's in the fridge soaking in teriyaki, and the skin in the jar....

The one pictured here is 19 1/2 inches long........

Impressive skin! Thank goodness those critters aren't as ornery as a cottonmouth.

That would make a beautiful band to go around a black cowboy hat. Smile

While all venomous snakes require the utmost respect and caution, I've always thought the look of the cottonmouth particularly intimidating. Many venomous snakes head shape kinda rounds back to the venom sacs. That way the cottonmouths look like they have that high ridge that goes back, kind of a high angle makes it look a bit more terrifying, imho.

juan, where I am from in North Alabama, we have Eastern Diamondbacks, Copperheads, and Cottonmouths. The Cottonmouth has a reputation for going out of it's way to crawl 100 yards to initiate a confrontation. I saw one last year in a truck stop parking lot in Earle, Arkansas, that was as big as my upper arm.

After bowhunting and walking through the woods before and after dark for decades, no other snake gets my respect like a Cottonmouth. They are simply bad news.

Virginia lists copperheads, cottonmouths, and rattlesnakes as residents but here where I live in Northern Virginia only copperheads seem to have a real population. You can travel a short way to get where you might see a rattlesnake but for cottonmouths you have to head to the southern half of the state. So I haven't really had the pleasure but I will keep your story in mind for when I do.

juan, I remember reading that the largest Cottonmouth on record, which was over 6 feet in length, was from Virginia. I can only imagine how thick that snake must have been, with an overall length of over 6 feet. affraid

That would make a nice belt...a great bandolier.


Maybe a tobacco pouch for Lakelands!

It's a common adornment to cowboy hats here in the States. This one has a rattlesnake skin.  Smile

That may be because these don't infest the Shire, my dear friend... The beauty of living in civilization is that the serpents there walk on two legs, and ask how they can help you...Makes them easy to spot

Quite true. You damn near have to step on them before they even thinking about striking. More than once I've walked and even sat within a foot or less of one and they barely even looked up at me.

Natch, a young one might even make a great pet, if you bring him a fresh cicada every now and then. Smile
