Almost stepped on this guy last night getting out of my truck to open the gate. Never seen one like this before around here. After I cleaned myself up, he got to meet the bottom side of my tire. In the dark, it looked like a water moccasin. Went back for a better look this morning. What say you snake experts? Diamondback water snake? [Linked Image]

So what was it?
Diamondback water snake??


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

With that fat a body and angular head, I prob woulda shot it anyway thinking it was a moccasin.

Anyway to tell those two apart without getting too close and personal?
