Both daytime and nighttime activity are possible for the Water Moccasin.
On bright, sunny days, though, they are typically discovered lying coiled or stretched out in the shadows.
They frequently spend the early morning and cold days soaking up the sun.
They frequently come out at dusk to warm themselves on warm surfaces.
