Nerodia fasciata pictiventris
water snake, this young one was sunning himself on a cold windy day.
Lowland swamps, marsh areas.
:3 Glad that makes you feel better. Watersnakes can be feisty but not kill you.
The picture on Wikipedia looks just like this snake. My son is much happier that is was not poisonous :)
I hear that a lot even up here Pennsylvania and we don't even have them, Cottonmouths aka Water Moccasins, here. :3
Thanks, I was with someone that said it was a water moccasin
Banded Watersnake I'm pretty sure or Florida Watersnake
This is not a Water Moccasin-it is a non-venomous watersnake
