Default Florida Moccasin in action!!! Good pictures..Check it out...

Just got home from catfishin' and had to post these pictures. We were sitting right at the edge of the water, I had my tackle box right at the water and I was using it to prop my feet up. I had just caught a little cat that swallowed the hook. I got the hook and and he was bleeding a little. I threw him in the water and he just sat there for a bit. After a few minute's I decided to nudge it to get it moving and when I looked over my tacklebox that Moccasin was sitting there staring at me and the catfish!!! Scared the $%^& out of me. I've had them chase me before and I dont like being 10inches away from one. Well I backed my stuff up and he went to work on the catfish. It was really awesome to watch him. (even though me and my brother had the jitter's after that). lol. He started at the tail and worked his way to the head. Cat fought a little but I guess the snake was too much for him. Anyway thought I would share the pics...

there are a few things that (I think) good lord could have done without and snakes are one of them.

I hate snakes. How long did it take for the snake to swallow the fish?

About 4 1/2 ft morgan! I deleted about 10 pic's because my hand's were a little shaky..lol.. Couple pic's I was only about 3 in from it. I knew it couldn't get that cat out of it's mouth fast enought to get me. He ended up taking it under water and I guess finishing it off. Had some gator's in the area also, hope he didn't run into one of those with that joker in his mouth..

i have seen something very similiar, and it definately makes your skin crawl. Im not sure what kind of snake i saw and im not sure of the size. Even though its creepy, its rather amazing to watch.
