    The snake was just trying to figure out if you were gonna be an amazing wizard or not

    That is a monster sized snake! It’s what nightmares are made of!

    • Lewis&Luke Roan says:

      +Freedom Anderson in that case, I’ll pet it, since there are larger snakes I shouldn’t be afraid. Right?

    • Lagnak says:

      Freedom Anderson Just because some snakes are bigger doesn’t mean that it isn’t a *very* big snake, especially relative to moccasins and other venomous snakes native to North America. I honestly have no clue why you felt the need to “correct” (in your eyes anyway) them.

    • Past Times says:

      Not something I’d like to encounter at night.

    • I dont care very much That im a random boi says:


    • Dageki says:

      *RhettyforFun* Well say what you think, & you have the right to be afraid. But truly, all *any* snake would much rather use its toxins for its prey, than you.

    Coyote: This snake will take you to hospital, don’t get too close to it.

    Also Coyote: Puts snake as close to face as possible.

    This snake looks like a rattlesnake

  11. Columbia Skies says:

    A water moccasin was the first snake I ever had an encounter with, when I was 5. I grew up in Florida and I love these snakes so much but every episode featuring them still makes me a little nervous

  12. Dante Trill says:

    Yeah remain calm in this situation

  13. TOPGUN787 Gaming says:

    This is by far the biggest cottonmouth we’ve ever seen! Has anyone seen bigger? If so where at?

    • James Banks says:

      Hi. I am a bid fan 😁😁😁

    • jhornak 16 says:

      Coyote have you thought of getting the giant Asian hornet on camera?

    • Richard Yingling says:

      Brave Wilderness *Yes, I’ve seen at least 2 bigger than that. 1 was actually quite a bit bigger counting length. It was in White County, Arkansas where I grew up. I live about 50 miles from there now. I just read the other reply so let me add the size. It was definitely over 5 feet, maybe 5 1/2, and it was probably 7 to 9 inches around*

    • Shkhk j Idgfgv says:

      Saw one 6-7 feet in North Carolina while on a nature trail it was on the bridge and we almost stepped on it.

  18. Experimental Fun says:

    I live right next to a river that is infested with these things, sometimes they come right up into my yard, I wish there was a way to control the population or relocate them.

    Poor snake. It was just sitting on his back porch relaxing when a couple of dudes showed up and put a bunch of lights and camera in its face. Rough night…🙂🙂
