Have you ever seen a cottonmouth this big?

I doubt it as this specimen measures more than five feet in length and is as big around as a soda can at is widest point. This is a Florida cottonmouth, the largest subspecies and is enough to give just about anyone the creeps.

This one is safely housed behind thick glass at Reptile World Serpentarium in Kissimmee, Fla

I’m searching out a huge western cottonmouth for the debut episode of Kingdom Zoo on GETV. We’re hoping to educate people about snakes and in this case the often misunderstood cottonmouth.

Wish me luck.
