Nerodia erythrogaster transversa

Smelly aquatic snakes. The pictured individual was found with Jeremy Brown at Enchanted Rock by following distress-calls from a Rana berlandieri we'd frightened into some brush; further investigation revealed this Nerodia trying to eat the Rana.

A subadult at Enchanted Rock, 8/13/05.

Closer view of its head, 8/13/05.

Another shot of him...
