Comments & Identifications

Thumb

Based on the FLMNH snake identification, I was thinking it was a Southern Banded Water Snake, but it doesn't look like any that of which there are pictures.

These watersnakes can be hard - its definitely Nerodia and these are the 3 in range

Hard to tell with certainty with the resolution, but that *should* be Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, the Florida (banded) watersnake. Definitely not N. taxispilota and really doesn't look like N. floridana. I'd say N. fasciata pictiventris (almost) for sure!
