    1. The photos under the species Agkistrodon piscivorus (Cottonmouth) are all miss IDs except for mine. The ones uploaded by Joe are a Brown Water Snake (Nerodia taxispilota) and the other remaining photos are a Pantherophis spp. likely spiloides. I'm changing them, but I guess wanted to inform you.
