    Are you sure .... that photo looks like a Cotton Mouth .....MUCH different snake than a little piqmy ..... the Cotton Mount is at least 2 foot up to 5 & is real FAT .... find em in swampy areas or larger retention ponds ... I've only seen 2-3 of em while working ...n that's in remote areas ....they are pissed off all the time n fast ... I go the other way

    The little pigmy is at best 18 inches long n 1/2 round ...n that would be a BIG one .... most 12 inches n 1/4 round .... they can't bite into a leg or arm only the tip of a finger .... like the lady in Lowes down in Melbourn e last week in the garden deptment (cha ching$$)

    Here a pigmy in my front walk way .... he's backed up against a 3/4 pipe


    caught him n threw him in the refugee behind me ... they do get all pissed off .... kinda cute .... they run in front of the mower .... stick their head up n run
