Cottonmouths turn darker as they get older. The younger ones pattern stands out more resembling the copperhead. Older ones sometimes can look almost black. The pattern can barely be seen on some of the older ones.

Both the cotton mouth and copper head are of the same gensus so juveniles look very similar a way to tell them apart is that copper heads have a hour glass shaped pattern over there backs and cotton mouths have a zig zag pattern. proper identification is important if bitten it could mean the diffrence between a few days or a week or more in the hospital as cotton mouths are more venomous than copper heads keep in mind a copper head can "spit"venom up to 6 feet

BTW its a cotton mouth

I've never heard of a Coral Snake spitting venom? I've heard of a Spitting Cobra which does such; aiming for a person's eyes. Tell me more. Thanks. C2

OK, when you get bit,What is the best first aid treatment for the snake bite?
Take yourself and the snake to the hospital?

Copper head not coral snake.I deal with snakes on a fairly regular basis if you pick them up they can and will spray venom in an attempt to disable the attacker and escape

the old train of thought was to tournequet (sp)...suck on it and so on...the thinking today is none of that really helps...get yourself to an ER and if you can bring the dead snake with you, it'll help identify what anti venom to use...be safe out there...
