Snake people, get in here!

Can anybody tell me what this is? It's eating my fish, and I don't know if it is a cottonmouth.

I can't be sure, but it doesn't look like a cottonmouth.








They have a body that's much thicker than the tail, so that one probably isn't one.

Snakes may have originally evolved at sea, then moved onto land later.  Just to get dried off.

It looks harmless.  Not a pit viper.  Some large garter snake maybe?

My brother is an expert on fish and reptiles and said it is difficult to tell from the photo but he guesses it's a rat snake.

OK, rat snakes around here tend to be black.  But still no threat.  Dude, they eat RATS!  What's to object about?

That could eventually lead to a one-party system in the US.

Or did you mean literal rats?

LOL!  Well, yes.  I'm usually pretty literal.  If I mean political rats, I will SAY "Republicans".  ;)

Some species of water snake, genus Nerodia?  Note the round pupils.

I don't know what kind of snake it is, but it is most definitely not a cottonmouth.
