One of the characteristics that distinguish this snake from others in the genus are the dark dots inside the dark crossbands along the body and a wide dark cheek stripe. The two dark vertical stripes on the snout help identify this subspecies found throughout the state. The only part of Florida eastern cottonmouths are found is the extereme western panhandle. Older adults appear mostly black while juvenile FLORIDA COTTONMOUTH snakes resemble a copperhead in coloring.
