Default Snakes

As the temperatures warms here in the Southeast, snakes begin to emerge
from hybernation...I caught one up yesterday and decided to use it to
teach alittle class on snake I.D....1st image is a yellow belly watersnake...
Often mistaken as a water moccasin, it's belly muddy yellow and lacking
in skin pattern on the back and head...It has sharp little gripping teeth set
in rows (like tiny peices of sharp glass)...The 2nd image is a water moccasin,
fanged, aggresive if cornered & poisonous, it's will display a white inner mouth,
often refered to as a cottonmouth for that reason..It's belly is blotchy black &
white, will have a enlongated light white stripes each side of the head at the eye.
Always aggresive and should be avoided...Recess!....lets here some stories..
