Today, while vising one of our managed lake sites, Joe stumbled across this well-camouflaged snake. With its somewhat triangular-shaped head, most people would jump to the conclusion that it is a venomous snake. But, in reality, it is a non-venomous water snake. While not poisonous, they are also quick to bite back hard if they feel any kind of danger from anyone. Their bite is strong enough to put you into a lot of pain. ‘Tis the season that these snakes start making appearances, so watch where you step…and if you don’t know what kind of snake you’re dealing with, it’s best to turn around and walk the other way.
