A Young Florida Green Watersnake (I); 10 November 2018

Nerodia floridana, the Florida green watersnake;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (10 November 2018).

This youngster was one of two sub-adult Florida green watersnakes I came across laying next to each other on the side of a road in south Florida. Both appeared quite healthy. Both seemed rather content with the cool thickness of the November evening air. Photographing them separately, however, was tricky. It can be a bit difficult to quick-shoot one writhing snake at a time. Once engaged, they tend to want to get away (as is natural, of course). In our next post, we’ll check out the other (slightly-larger) sub adult.
