  1. From wikipedia: "They are named "cottonmouth" because they are distinguished from other members of their family by their bleach-white mouth and tongue".

    Interesting!

    1. Thanks, Christine for the additional info.
      Unfortunately, those features are hardly visible/possible in regular photography.

The cottonmouth jack is a gamefish in the family ''Carangidae''. It was first described in 1860 by Cuban zoologist Felipe Poey in his two-volume work ''Historia Natural de la Isla de Cuba'', or "Natural History of the Island of Cuba". It is also known as the cottonmouth trevally.
