Baby Snake
Posted By: shardulm, 10-20-2017, 10:06 AM

Came across this baby in my front yard. It was very small but looks like all his features are fully developed.

This one was quiet tiny actually. Here is a cellphone shot to give the idea how tiny it was. More like a worm size wise... but was very agile as a snake should be.

Are you sure that's a baby snake.The markings make it look like a fully grown Copper Head to me. They usually never get bigger than 18" long at adult stage.

Just a note, in your future postings of macro shots, please post in the Post Your Photos forum ass this forum won't be here much longer as Adam is splitting the Macro forum in two parts.

Yeah hard to guess. But No. It's seems to be a common water snake and non-venomous.
Non-venomous snakes have round pupils.

I never looked at a venomous snake that close to see what their pupils looked like. So I 'll take you at your word.

my son kept herps until his son was born
after he moved to Missouri there always seemed to be a copperhead in a tank

if you don't want to look one in the eye, look at the head behind the eye
pit vipers have a triangular noggin

in my limited experience water snakes are quite aggressive though handsome

I knew pit vipers have a triangular head. And not all water snakes are non venomous either. Water Moccasin being one deadly snake.

I know not all water snakes are non venomous. And Water Moccasins are indeed deadly.

Here an interesting read on the venomous snakes.

Venomous

Believe me the camera was close not me. The flexible LCD screen was a god send as I did not have to lie down in awkward position to take this picture. Also I needed a stance where I could quickly back off just in case. But this guy was stationed there as if he was the celebrity and I was the paparazzi.

cottonmouths are pit vipers as well

the water snakes I've met are almost as large and as aggressive
as a matter of fact a water snake is the only snake that got itself killed striking at me
we have them in our creek drainage

I do because I like snakes. I think they're some of the coolest reptiles on the planet.
