Gainesville Florida Snake Situation: What do baby water moccasin snakes look like. I saw what I believe to be a corn snake on my front porch. I am aware that many snakes in my area (Gainesville, FL) are mistaken for water moccasins. When I looked it up on the internet, I have seen many pictures. One of which looked like the snake on my front porch. Can you please either send me a picture or a link to an accurate picture. Thank you for your time.
Here are some photos.
Thank you so much. Those pictures really helped. Our neighbors a few houses down are telling everyone they found baby cotton mouths- that they look completely different as babies- they look like corn snakes. I'm now 99% sure they were juvenile black racers, which is what I saw on my front porch. We saw a black racer all the time when we first moved here and we haven't seen it in months (named him Ricky Bobby). I was scared that without their presence, bad snakes were moving in. We live right on a pond. We have eagles and other birds of prey and other predators- so I'm pretty sure he/they got eaten. I thought the snake on my front porch was a corn snake, but it looked a little different. I chased it off into our flower bed. Then I was panicked when our neighbor gave a description of it as a baby cotton mouth. Then I got on-line to look for pictures. I found a ton of different snake pictures claiming to be cotton mouths. So thank you for accurate pictures. I will circulate these pictures as much as possible. I like how many pictures there are. Towards the end I was testing myself by trying to identify the snake before I read the name of it. What do you do with the black racers you catch? I might be interested in having a few released on my property, if possible. Thank you, again.
