It was live. I actually thought it was a DOR. I pulled up beside it and when
I opened the door, I literally was about to step right on top of it. I had to
pull up another few feet and it never moved. I thought it was another breed
until I got close enough to take the pictures, and saw what it was. The markings
were really covered in the dried dirt. I got my hook out of the back and lifted
it up and this thing came to life. I tried to throw it off into the edge of the
bank where this marshy area is, and this thing made a U turn and crawled
right back to the road near my feet. I picked it up with the hook again and
tossed it back in the grass and it made another U turn and came back to the
road RIGHT TOWARD MY ASS !!! I pinned it with the hook and finally got it
near the middle of it's body and launched it into the swamp. That sucker
was wanting to get run over, and I was more determined to save it's life.

It's the midlands version of a banned water snake. I've seen these things all
along the Congaree and Saluda River. I've seen dozens of the Low Country
breed of them. I had a real unusual encounter with one in Edisto. I posted that
here several years ago.

I thought it was a Water Moccasin at first. It's in the exact location where
I've seen several water moccasins over the past couple of years, but this
one turned out to be a Banded Water Snake.

Trying to figure out what happened there. I took three pictures of it originally
before getting it out of the road. All three pics were the same angle and same
spot. I just rotated the pictures when I posted them. I also (in that second
pic) lightened it up some on Photoshop, and added just a little sharpness. I
didn't notice it until I posted the picture on the board. I went back and looked
at the original and it wasn't there. There's not a light streak there either ...hummmm

Maybe a snake guardian angle, or a ghost orb captured unaware !

These things are pretty much in every state in the Eastern US, but they
vary in color and size according to where you are. There's even several
color and pattern variations in each state. In SC, the coastal region has more
darker base color with a light brown side just near the belly and the lower
jaws. Those are called "normal" / common banded water snakes. In the
midlands you get snakes that are basically the same pattern, but lighter brown
(almost gray) like this one as the base color and a tan or dull brown side and
lower jaw. Once you get above the midlands you get the Northern Banded
water snake. Those are lighter base color and a more vivid pattern with an additional
row of patches or saddle marking on the side. All of them get much more
defined when they're wet or in the water but the patterns and colors dull
as they dry out on land.

Come on it's damn March! I have a buddy that's been shot, stabbed, and bitten on the stomach by a Water Moccasin. He said the other two don't even rate on the same scale as far as pain goes.
