Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Definitely, positively, and absolutely not Nerodia taxispilota! I agree with CSC -- most likely a N. sipedon.
This snake is not a brown watersnake--they have square blotches. This is a midland watersnake (Nerodia sipedon).
