  • Water Snakes - While two snakes may look similar, that is no indication that they are, in fact, similar at all. The Water Snake, commonly mistaken for the Cottonmouth, is located in scattered parts of North America. This snake is known to be aggressive, yet despite its non-venomous nature it is known to deliver a very severe bite if agitated. These snakes received their name by their ability and preference of hunting in the water, so it is important to know what these snakes look like should you stumble upon one in the shallow waters near a swampy area filled with unsuspecting prey for this gifted hunter.
