I saw this fella while on our visit in North Carolina. I've had some difficulty making a positive ID, but I think I've narrowed it down to either a Northern Water Snake or a Brown Water Snake. The Brown Water Snake supposedly doesn't inhabit the part of NC where we were, but I know better than to place barriers on Ma Nature. I'm leaning toward a Northern Water Snake and if anyone knows for sure, please confirm or correct me. Maybe it's not either one.
