no doubt at all!!! a cottonmouth!!!!! you can tell by the diamond shaped head, the small sunk in eyes and the pointed nose, because of the diamond shaped head and the fat stubby body!! usually, they have a smell, you can't mistake!! when they get older, they turn darker and then black!! get a long stick and poke at him! when he coils up and opens that mouth, you will see nothing but white, thats why they call them cottonmouths!! just be careful, he mite come after you, they are mean as heck!!! what makes a cottonmouth so bad, is if they can bite you more than once, they will!!! a non poisonous water snake or any non poisonous snake, has an oval type head and big round poke out, buldging kind of eyes!! if you don't trust a stick, or your judgement, use a 12 guage!! good luck and be safe!!! and ya brandon, i hate them things too!!!! oh ya, like bubbamccoy said, choot-um, choot-um!!!
