From what I have seen in the past, I seem to remember the cottonmouth as been stone cold black and the inside of the mouth was cotton white,
I would say this would be a copper head, but I wouldn't best my last dog on it
So what is this snake?
From the snake book

Large moccasins are black, but you can still see the "design" on them. The one he caught is a moccasin. The band on each side of the head. Most cottonmouths look like the one he caught. Cooperheads are lighter in color.

The butt end of the snake doesn't mate up to the cotton mouth snake from the one pictured from the snake book, still ain't got sure on the kind???
Maybe the Eastern Cottonmouth?

Cotton mouths have various color patterns....Definitely not a copperhead, I've killed several here at the house...

It looks like one of the snakes we have here in Texas . That might be a Western Copperheaded Rattle Mocisan .

So we can say for sure it is a cottonmouth good {maybe Eastern one?}.
Guess you can say if either one bit you, your SOL and better get to the hospital fast, which one would has the hottes venom?
From what I read about snake bites, the only thing to do is to say cool and get the hospital, no cutting, ice packs, nothing else, correct??
