Florida Brown Banded Water Snake

I photographed this fellow this past week inside my outdoor Tortoise pen.
There is a reasonably-sized creek running behind the backside of our home and we do occasionally get visitors. The various water turtles venture out to lay their eggs and the occasional snake will cruise through just to see what's going on.

This particular fellow was spotted within my tortoise pen and opted to hang around for a photo session. He/She (I did not detain the animal) allowed me to get reasonably close without exhibiting any type of threat display.

When I left him, he was crawling along side the tortoise house apparently looking for a quick meal or a place to bed down for the evening.

Enjoy the pictures...

Nice pictures. That brings back so many memories from my youth in Fla. Those have got to be one of the stinkiest snakes on earth. And they can spray a stream of musk for at least 6 feet. But when I was a kid and saw a snake I didn't care what kind it was, or how it smelled for that matter, and I would catch it.

Where are you located in FL.? I hope to breed mangroves later on I have one CBB 04 Female Red phase mangrove and could always use fresh bloodlines.
