Water Snakes are the most common type of snake that can be found all over the U.S. They live near water in small rock outcroppings. They are mistaken by people as venomous, but they are not.
These reptiles can grow to be about four feet in length. Their diet consists of frogs, fish, and other animals that live in or near water. During the fall and the spring, these snakes like to curl up together in the sunlight and take long naps in the heat.
When water snakes swim, they keep their heads above the water since they do not have gills, and thus they cannot breathe underwater. Water snakes hibernate during the winter, and only wake up in March or April.
