Im being told these little guys may in fact be water snakes. Wondering if you could take a look.

Yep, watersnake. Distinct crossband pattern from head to tail. Pits including Bulls tend to have diffuse dorsal AND lateral blotches anteriorly, becoming more distinct posteriorly. Different look entirely when you become familiar with the details of color, pattern and shape...
