Spring Break 2018: A Hiding Brown Watersnake

Nerodia taxispilota, the Brown watersnake;
Collier county, Florida (15 March 2018).
Series: Spring Break 2018.

Here’s another in situ Brown watersnake, Nerodia taxispilota, hiding out amongst the limestone-laden waterlines of Collier county, Florida. The random waterways, canals, and creeks of south Florida are a veritable highway system for our non-venomous Nerodia watersnakes. If there isn’t an overabundance of foliage to hide within and atop, then there’s always the limestone rocks themselves. If I’m reincarnated as a watersnake, I really, really hope I get dropped back into existence in Collier county, Florida.
