Your supposed to flip him over and inspect his butthole before you kill them. I saw it on the internet so you know it's true.

She has a few little ankle biter teacup sized mutts, I told her she better keep an eye on them. She killed 2 of the snakes this morning on her porch and the 3rd slipped into the tank about 20 yds from her back porch.

It does apply to any of the indigenous venomous snakes in the U.S.

A 'single' row (vs. a double row) AFTER the anal vent/plate indicates a venomous snake.

A 'double' row is non-venomous.

Naturally, it is recommended you try to make the distinction using other identifying features FIRST, so you don't have to handle or kill the snake. wink

That is what we used to call blotched water snakes, but have been reclassified with several other subspecies. They're now called plain-bellied water snakes.

^^^^^^^^^^ Indeed they do. The largest water snake I've seen in my lifetime was a diamond-backed water snake. In both length and girth....it was HUGE. Sunning itself on a large piece of foam dock flotation material on Lake Travis.

As it uncoiled itself and slipped into the water I got a really good look at it. I'm guessing it was all of 5 feet long (or better) and probably 8" in girth. Big...powerful snake.

I've caught small ones while wading creeks, but you have to catch them on land, they are much too fast in the water.

And YES, they are all too happy to BITE...if they see an opportunity.

Very aggressive snakes that don't seem to have the normal fear of humans.

Good snake. It has (o) eyes, not (|) eyes.
