X3 on docile They usually even give a warning strike ( very little venom ) before the one that will really hurt.

that's the best kind

Have to watch for them in your campsites, too!
This was taken at Topsail last August.

This sure looks like a water moccasin, their coloring is not always dark, look at the shape of the head and marking on the side near the eye.

While sorry I canít chime in on what kind of snake it is. I am one of those who only know a dead snake cause that is what they are when I see them. Canít tell the difference donít want to get close enough to them for an examination. In the summer my neighbors always know when I have seen one while cutting grass. My yard looks like a corn maze from chasing it on the mower. But then I have to wonder did I get or is it just tangled under the mower. LOL.
