The cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus) isn’t exactly the most discriminating diner when it comes to selecting a meal. As a matter of fact, this Southeastern U.S.-dwelling snake will eat everything from carrion, to birds, to catfish, and even engage in a little psuedo-cannibalism, some of which you’ll see at work on the rattlesnake in the video embedded below.

At least one snake was harmed (somewhat permanently) in the making of this video.

    That rattler was a bit young and inexperienced. Up against age and experience it was out of its league.
