Is there anything as adorable as a juvenile Florida banded watersnake (Nerodia fasciata pictiventris) just starting to wind and slink its way through life? As noted before on Floridensis (a few dozen times), the Florida banded watersnake is a non-venomous species. Unfortunately, it’s often misidentified as the Florida cottonmouth and consequently slaughtered by people. But not this time. Not on this night. This night, this little kid survived to see another day.
