Smooth bellied water snake? My daughter found this at Kessiel park today.
I live in Alabama and was cutting grass when all of a sudden I thought I hit a rock but as I turned off the lawnmower to retrieve rock I seen a very long tail sticking out the other side so I panicked bc my 4 yr old nephew was running around playing. Do you know what kind of snake this is. Thanks in advance. Blessings,
-This is not a pop quiz, any kind of research is encouraged and I hope you will engage with other commenters to try to figure these snakes out. I will eventually chime in with my thoughts.
-Assume I know what kind of snake is in the picture. I run these posts because they are outreach opportunities. Please don’t send me private e-mails with your guesses, include them below.
-Remember, the person that sent me the picture is probably reading your comments. Although it is frustrating to know that many of these snakes have been killed, these people do want to learn more about them. More snake knowledge will lead to fewer snakes being killed. Don’t hate, educate.
