The top snake is a norhtern brown water snake without a doubt. The other snake appears to be a brown water snake as well. Possiblt from the eastcoast, but not positive.

Well i live in ohio so the eastcoast is close enough. I caught thse guys in Riley Creek in Bluffton, Ohio. The top one bite me quite a few times.The middle one i think is a female from how i was told too sex them. I am a total herp enthusiast. I’ve had reptiles and amphibians my whole life.But anyways, i thought they were northern banded water snakes all three of them. I found them in the same area. There are large flat rocks on this creek and you only have to pick up a few rocks to find them, the only reason i did it was because the creek dried up this summer for a while and the food sources around there were dying off. Good looking out on giving me your advice i appreciate it.

those are deffinitley northern water snakes.
they are not venemous and are usually not agressive.
i caught one once and it never tried to bite me and i fed him on little minnows since he was a baby.
i fed him once a week.

but definitely northern water snakes..

Water snakes (Nerodia) are arguably one of the most aggressive snakes in North America. I catch quite a few every weekend when I go herping, it takes some skill not to get tagged by one of those sweet-hearts.

nearly every time i stick my hand in the water snake tank they all dash over to my hand, and my florida water snake bites on to my hand.
