Looks like they could be water moccasins. We have them in KY and your pic looks similar.

Hope you're not standing next to them waiting on a response, lol.

I think you're right, they look pretty close to other pictures. Thanks!

My mom found them while hiking and got out of there pretty quick. It's funny how 20 years ago she would have just turned around and left right away, but no, these days people have to take a picture of the venomous snakes first lol

those are hognose snakes. Water moccasins are aggressive and they stink

those are too big for hog noses. They do look a bit like water moccasins, except the coloration is a little wrong, the scales don't look keeled, and the head shape is wrong. The scales on the head look more like a colubrid (rat snake family) as well. Those look more like water snakes.

That being said, the photo quality isn't good enough for me to definitively make that call.

I didn't know we had an active snakes sub. T

On second thought I must agree with you. They're awfully fat to be hognoses.

Hey. I just said it looked like a moccasin. Lol

I read through all your stuff, excellent research BTW, and while it looks like you're quite probably correct... Meh. My gut is still screaming water moccasin.The pic quality sucks for obvious reasons, lol, and the snakes look similar enough that we can debate this for hours and we'll never know for sure.

In the end, I'm just gonna go with 'It's a fucking snake, GTFO!'

Excellent information! They could definitely be hognosed. There are two small ponds within a few hundred yards or so of the area. Not sure if that's too far to be relevant

Live in Texas, the water moccasins seems to stay pretty close to the water?

Ah. That's the famous NOPE snake. They habitats the NOPE River. I hear they can always be found in 3's. You found 2, so safe to say there are 4 around you that you can't see.
