Default Just met a new snake!

Walking past the well, I was surprised to see a snake. Usually, the dogs would run of the milder snakes, or raise heck when they find one that won't run... slither?

I stopped for a better look, it was blackish on top, yellow orange belly. I didn't know what it was, but I knew what it wasn't, but it was also very shy, and refused to let me get a closer look. According to Goggle, it's a Plain Bellied Watersnake. Good sized fella, about 3 1/2' and kinda thick. He was a good distance from the water though.

I saw one of those for the first time last summer. It was swimming in a creek at the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park in Augusta.
