Hard to see pics good on my phone. It is a mud snake.that's a mud snake and endangered species in ms iirc. I've never seen one in the wild, just stuffed at the science museum. I have heard of folks finding them around the rez. harmless crawdad eater. all this rain probably got it moving.
Sounds more like target practice.We were moving some old barn roof tin Monday because the Missus said it looked "snakey." Well when I lifted up the last piece there was a big fat cottonmouth coiled up under it! Sucker had a big old head that me & Glock 17 quickly separated from the body. I fired 4 more shots into it "because cottonmouth". The head was still trying to bight.
