Spring Break 2023: Agkistrodon conanti

Agkistrodon conanti, the Florida cottonmouth;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

While the previous Florida cottonmouth didn’t give me much time or opportunity to snag a shot, this one most certainly did. Found near the edge of Main Park Road in Everglades National Park, this cottonmouth was quite set on holding its ground defensively. Good for my camera, but not awesome for the snake. It’s a dangerous game, basking on the edge of Main Park Road in the Everglades. Far too many are hit by cars each night.
