Blotched Water Snake (Nerodia erythrogaster transversa)
This snake has been able to hang on in many areas where major sources of surface water have been eliminated.
This non-poisonous water snake can reach up to 58 inches long. This one was probably about 36 inches long. While Mark was sitting on the river bank this snake started swimming straight toward him.
I hope you enjoyed our trip to Pedernales Falls State Park!
