    That's my guess. Eastern Hognose.

    Yes it is a hognose. If the "I'm a big, dangerous venomous snake!" ruse doesn't work, it will writhe around for a few seconds and turn on its back with its tongue hanging out. It will be as limp as a rope if you pick it up. If you set it down on its stomach, it will turn over on its back again. Apparently its limited programming says that all dead snakes must be on their backs.

    I don't see how anyone could confuse a famously thick bodied snake like a moc/mouth with almost any other NA snake. The only snakes at heavy are outside the US and look nothing like cottonmouths.

    And if you have to be bitten by one, you would MUCH rather be bitten by a copperhead than a cottonmouth.

    I see it all the time. At our local swimming hole I had a family rush their kids out of the water when a "water moccasin" swam by. Being way up north here, I tried to convince them that we were FAR out of range, but all they did was pull up a pic on their phone and insist it looked just like that. Didn't bother to check a range map or do any research or trust me, who actually works there every day.
