I always look into their eyes.. If they have cat eyes= poison, if they have round pupils there ok. I could be wrong someday but, its worked so far.

Its an anaconda. Some day when it grows up to a monstrous size it will get revenge on you for disturbing it. You better watch out....

It is some sort of corn/rat snake, and certainly not poisonous. It is a small constrictor of some sort.

I hope you didn't kill it.

I was trying to see if the head was pit viper shaped, sort of a triangle. If the eyes are round this would indicate non-poisoned. The markings and the way it was acting is point toward water moccasin, but at first glance I thought it was a copper head.

Never saw a water moccasin hide away from the water though.

I agree it looks like a colubrid, non poisonous but you should treat every snake as poisonous unless you absolutely know different. I doubt seriously it's a moccasin. Moccasins are just mean as hell and will absolutely come at you if cornered, and often even when they are not cornered. Catching it is a bad plan. Send pics to your local wildlife officer and he'll be able to tell you quickly.

Due to the shape of the head and the poor details of the picture (the snake was also dusty) I can only venture an educated guess...It is either a Texas Brown Snake or a juvenile king snake. The shape of the head tells me it is not poisonus.

dang, i dont think its a mocassine or however you spell it..but do not quote me on that.

but personally i dont like snakes it gives me the creeps, but when im out hiking i always have my eyes peeled and if i come across one i leave it alone unless its acting like it wants to bite me.. then well its going to meet my 20g birdshot up close in person..

but i have never had to do that just yet..

i do recall when i was younger i was visiting my aunt in southern w.v and i was chased my a snake. i believe it was called a blue racer..
that sucker was fast as heck i jumped up on my dads new car and put all kinds of dents in it.. lol that snake was crazy

At first with the still picture I thought maybe a baby rattle snake, but watching the video it looks more like a gopher snake. Looks like it has a broken tail end!!

While no snake expert, surely that isn't a cottonmouth as I've never seen one go far out it's way to try to escape as this snake in the video did.
