It will either be a diamondback watersnake or a texas rat snake. Diamondback watersnakes have a diamond pattern but I have seen them dull orange. texas rat snakes have blotches and I have found them with bright orange or red. It seems odd but I often find them in or near water. I found a nice male that was 6 ft 7 in very close to water. I belive it is most likely a texas rat, they can be found in most of southern U.S.

I was with him and no.. it was not a rat or corn ... (I have them at home and they are NOt like this)


And it was a REALLY bright orange. With burnt orange bands.... we think now it is a subspecies a or a sum sort of amel banded water snake. (it was a water snake)


thankyou though!
