Snakes on Cross Lake

This snake was on the roof of my boat house. It looks like a banded water snake.

  1. That was a NON venomous Texas Rat Snake (Elaphe obsoleta lindheimeri). Some people do get these confused with Water Moccasins/Cottonmouths and regular Water Snakes because of their patterns and colors. Texas Rat Snakes can sometimes put on quite a display. That is why some people get them confused with venomous snakes. Snakes are not out to hurt people and will not chase you. You can contact Steve’s Snaketuary for identification and safe removal and relocation of snakes.
