Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, 23 April 2016

Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, the Florida banded watersnake;
Nassau county, Florida (23 April 2016).

Check out this young Florida banded watersnake. So young and already such attitude — as it should be. Truth be told, the Florida banded watersnake isn’t the smartest species we have in Florida. They don’t seem as strategically deliberative or reactive compared to their other watersnake cousins… Perhaps that’s why they’re among my favorites? I can’t help but to root for the underdogs. Bless their hearts.
