This video is exactly why you don't get close to a cottonmouth...ever!
The cottonmouth is often referred to as one of most aggressive snakes in the south. These bad dudes don't like to let humans get too close, and this video proves it!
Watch the video below to see this snake go crazy!
What is crazy is that even as the photographer continues to back away from the snake it keeps coming and keeps striking repeatedly. Thankfully, it seems everyone was able to get away from the snake without any harm to themselves or the animal.
Most often when confrontations like this go down either the human or the animal end up getting hurt.
