I think itís a Broad Banded water snake. But my wife thinks the same snake from the move Anaconda and it wants to eat all my kids, her and the dogs!! I was trying to take a nap while they went swimming in our pond. IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180603/24dd59cdda1302cb35e7fc988ec69a0b.jpg[/IMG]

Something doesn't look right in that picture. I don't think it's a broadbanded. It's tough to tell cause of the picture quality, but I'm thinking baby bull snake maybe.

I see the turned up nose, so I'm sure it's a water snake now. I don't think it's broadbanded though. I'd go with blotched water snake over broadbanded. Tough one!

I think the head and markings are wrong for a bull snake, even a juvenile. I agree with the broadband water snake ID.
