Natural history of cottonmouth moccasin, Agkistrodon piscivorus (Reptilia).
If you particularly liked gators and snakes, on the other side of town, Texas Jim Mitchell ran the Framalopa Reptile Farm, which featured dozing rattlesnakes, coral snakes, cottonmouth moccasins, black snakes, gopher snakes, and chicken snakes; a wildcat, looking forlornly out of its too-small cage; a senile lion that could barely yawn; and two chained monkeys that every so often would do something so obscene that the women would avert their eyes and the men would nudge each other.
Osceola country is also home to cottonmouth moccasins and diamondback rattlers so the ideal boot is waterproof, fang-proof and just as important, friendly to the feet.
