while fishing this weekend we saw a lot of snakes. Its spawn time so we were flipping which means the boat is up in the weeds and when it gets hot the snakes come out to sun. this one is a harmless water snake. you can tell by the eyes and the head. most water snakes have bands around their bodies like a moccasin so dont go by that. most of the time when people see a water snake they automatically assume its a moccasin and kill it. im a big fan of snakes so i dont even kill moccasins but i understand why others do but please leave the banded, brown and green water snakes alone. They r very friendly and only help.
