It was feeding time this weekend at the house. I've had this cottonmouth for just over a year now. He usually eats rodents but this time I decided to try something different. I've had a dead water snake in my freezer for several months and I wanted to see what would happen if I put it in the cage with the cottonmouth. I thawed it out and tossed it in. The cottonmouth ate it immediately. Without hesitation. I barely had time to take any pictures, which is why this one isn't very good. Thought y'all might find it interesting. It's no king cobra or anything like that but still kind of cool.
