    After reading through my Audobon guide I was thinking Northern water snake or perhaps Banded water snake as well. They look very similar, the only real difference is some markings on the head. Harmless snakes though a might bit cantancerous. Interesting factoid, if they do bite you be prepared for lots and lots of bleeding because their saliva contains an anti-coagulent.

    Probably you had just chewed on some jimson root and were hallucinating the whole time. Didn't you recently have some auditory hallucination where you heard some growling? Probably was one and the same...an spotted and speckled cottonmouth kingsnake with a hoarse voice (from acid reflux).

    Stop chewing on that jimson weed and I think you will find all these sounds and wild critters will go away.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I photographed a Northern water snake recently...but I didn't see its belly. Just the top. Didn't notice any yellow dots.... I did read about the anti-coagulent though. Made me glad I was high above it.

    The sharp eyed Ozzy would never mistake bands for spots that look like little yellow flowers sticking to a wet snake. If he saw spots that look like little yellow flowers sticking to a wet snake, then the snake had to have spots that look like little yellow flowers sticking to a wet snake. Nothing more; nothing less.
