Copperbelly Water Snake

Snakes, yikes, they are not the most loved creatures in the animal world. And yet, they can be appreciated. Snakes keep their prey populations in check. Copperbelly Water Snakes eat frogs and toads. Their name comes from the red-orange to slightly yellowish belly color that extends up the chin. They have dark colored scales on their back (dorsal) side that dip down into the belly region (Copperbelly Water Snake photo by jstark918 on iNaturalist.org).
