Ozzy, SNAKES OF NEW JERSEY
Northern Water Snake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon)
Identification: 24" - 42". Although commonly mistaken for a water moccasin, the Northern Water Snake is a nonvenomous
Just thought I'd post this, it is very similar in apperance to the water moccasin. There is actually a place near my home(in NJ) where I've seen about a hundred or so of these snakes mating in one big heap. It was like something out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I've never seen so many snakes at one time! I didn't know what type of snakes they were, I had to ask the local park ranger. He said it was pretty common occurance among the water snakes.
