Brown water snakes have very colorful undersides, and this one had some very nice colors on it!
I went to finish my walk and I saw another about the same size but it was gone before I got to it. After that one swam away, I spotted a smaller one about a foot and a half long. If the bank was flatter I could have gotten to it but it was on an area of the bank were it was dried up and pretty steep to walk on.
Also, despite the arrow shaped head, and common belief, brown water snakes are NON-VENOMOUS!
