Water Moccasins Come Out of Hibernation
Saturday, March 17, 2012
It’s that time of year when snakes
come out of hibernation and you are likely to start seeing several snakes at White Rock Lake.
One needs to be extra careful walking along the banks
of Dixon Branch Creek. Snakes are everywhere, especially Water Moccasins. The images below were taken on March 17, 2012.

More often than not, you will see the
snakes sunning themselves on branches that hang over the water, or in bushes
beside the creek.
The snakes love sunning themselves on branches that hang over the water
