So I kinda wanted to start a post of your favorite find of last year, I haven't had time to herp much this year but planning to go out soon. I found this awesome cottonmouth last year in Tallahassee when I was living there. By far my favorite snake of last year and ever. Feel free to post your favorite find of last year!

That is a stunning cottonmouth. I love that pattern.
Great photo. I'll have to dig around to see what I can contribute.

Drew, I have to ask, what's going on with that cottonmouth? Is it some sort of genetic disorder I don't know of, or did it hybridize with a copperhead? It's the oddest thing I've ever seen, and one of the most beautiful.

This is simply an aberrantly patterned cottonmouth, it's not a hybrid and I'd imagine the aberrency is developmental and not genetic. Just my opinion, for what it's worth. All that being said, it's a very nice looking critter.
