Florida Man Tries To Kiss Cottonmouth Snake, Hospitalized After Bite
The Florida Cottonmouth, also known as the Cottonmouth Moccasin, a Water Moccasin, a Moccasin (Agkistrodon piscivorus conanti) "is a venomous snake, a species of pit viper, found in the southeastern United States. Adults are large and capable of delivering a painful and potentially fatal bite. When antagonized, they will stand their ground by coiling their bodies and displaying their fangs."
My husband sees them on the golf course and has seen many a smart golfer just walk away from a ball near this snake.
Play keep away... no kissess.
