Description:

Northern Water Snake is a large, nonvenomous, well-known snake that is native to North America. They are active during the day and at night. They are most often seen basking on rocks, stumps, or brush. During the day, they hunt among plants at the water's edge, looking for small fish, frogs, worms, leeches, crayfish, salamanders, small birds and mammals. At night, they concentrate on minnows and other small fish sleeping in shallow water.

Habitat:

They live near lakes, ponds, marshes, rivers, and canals; just about anywhere there is freshwater.
