A juvenile Florida banded water snake working its way through the grass along the side of the levee I was walking on - I got down low and waited for it to pop out of the dead grass - it stopped and pulled up when it noticed me and my lens pointing back at it
On a cooler than normal day for south Florida, this brown water snake had coiled itself up about 5 feet above the water, on the fan of a palm, to try to catch a little sun - unfortunately the day was overcast, so it wasn't getting as much as it would hope for.
Hi I wonder if anyone can help ID this large snake from China. It was seen on the island of Chongming which is just off Shanghai. I've attached a couple of photos but unfortunately (or as it turned out, probably fortunately) I don't have any images of its head.
It was on a concrete farm track...
Eastern Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis) 44-66 cm (17.3-26.0 in) long with a record of 124 cm (48.8 in) long. Carleen Bright Arboretum, Waywood, McLennan County, Texas, USA. Rolling hills with planted trees, shrubs, and herbs at 167 m (548 ft) elevation. March 2019
This snake was discovered right next to the accommodation block one morning. Jonas did catch it with a view to taking it to the field station which at the time was inhabited by a bunch of biology students from the States on a field trip.
There was some question whether this was a venomous snake...
I photographed this beautyful snake at the Napo River in Equador years ago. the guides there had not seen here before, except one, and he did not know the name either. so far could not find her in the internet - around one and a half meter long - some help?
This species is the most primitive viperids species. Its primitive features include the large shields on its head (rather than the many small scales on the heads of other vipers and pit-vipers), smooth dorsal scales, and the egg-laying breeding method. It can be only found in the high altitude...
As I was not familiar with snakes, I didn't come close to examine it when I spotted a snake curl on one side of the trail. When I processed the photos in my computer, I just managed to find that there were 2 snakes instead.
