Water vipers are a species of venomous snakes found in the southern United States. They are capable of performing a highly painful bite. If they are antagonized they stand their ground by coiling their bodies and then show off their fangs. These snakes are almost always found in or near water. They are also known as water moccasins. Diets are usually fish and frogs.
