Natrix maura viperina
A bit agressive and defensive. Whistles a lot and atacks if you get close enough. After a while she surrenders and can be very friendly.
Near fresh water courses. Feeds on smal reptiles and anphibians, insects, fish...
Found on my backyard... Had to move her to a more adequate habitat.
