    Noxubee Wildlife Refuge

    Couple good nights in a row road herping out at Noxubee Wildlife Refuge here in north Mississippi. Couple Cottonmouths, a Pygmy Rattlesnake, and a little Garter Snake.
    Not pictured are two DORs, big timber rattler about 4í+ and another cottonmouth both found dead last night.

    BTW, what did you "do" to those cottonmouths to keep them so calm? "Everyone" claims they get chased by them, lol.

    Hah! Yeah, what vicious beasts they are!

    Completely honest, they didnít even gape at us last night or tonight. Never let that drop your guard though

    Very cool finds and thanks for sharing. That Pygmy is so colorful. Speaking of colorful, I find it interesting that the darkest part of an adult cottonmouth, the tail, starts out as the brightest part (neon green) when they are babies. Same with Copperheads. Got to love nature.

    What a fruitful evening! Thanks for sharing your photos.

    Iím not very good at identifying colubrids and may be mistaken, but pics 4,5,7 look like a Copperhead to me. I donít mean to be petty or unappreciative, just curious since you didnít mention them.

    Looking forward to to your next excursion.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    If you just google cottonmouth photos, you'll see the huge range of markings they can possess, from dark & hard to see, to lighter & more visible; note the eye stripe
    on these (cottonmouths) above...copperheads don't have them.
