Greetings from a fellow southerner! I have posted this question is several of the southern state forums. I recently read a book about dangerous snakes in the S.E. United States, and was curious to hear any experiences with them. Your state I would think, would have a lot of Water Moccasins. I understand their role in nature, and respect them, not fear them, but I still don't like the thought of playing in a river in the summer, and walking up on one. I was just curious to hear any thoughts or stories, anyone might have. Thanks!
