 Water bandit

my friend a year ago caught a water bandit from a lake and raised it and just recently released it back into the wild, but he says they look exactly like cotton mouths, and you can only tell them apart if you open theyre mouth up? is that true? and is it likely that if you take a snake out of the wild like that it will be nice because HIS was. NO i dont plan on getting a snake its banned in my house.

By water bandid you mean water snake of some kind right? No itís not true - look up some pictures on google and you will see the difference by yourself. The second thing isnít true either - most W/C are pretty nippy most of them will tame down if handled often but, generally W/C snakes are aggressive even though there are exceptions. To raise a snake and release it is very bad idea and shouldnít be done - Iím not going to discus why, it would take too long.

You donít have to open any snakeís mouth to identify it.
