Hunting for Water Snakes in Alabama

This guy finds a hissing diamondback water snake between some rocks. The water snake bites him 35 seconds into the video. He has been bit so many times that he is actually tired of it. As he says, these water snakes can be quite aggressive, and they will really give you a run for your money. They will also try to look more aggressive than they really are. Unlike many other snakes, they really mean it when they bite; it is not just a warning bite. In the video, you will also get a close up view of snake scales. Although water snakes are harmless, this video demonstrates that they really do bite.

Water Snake Eating Goldfish

The action in this video begins after 53 seconds, where a water snake attacks and begins eating the goldfish. Unfortunately, goldfish contain an enzyme that harms water snakes.

The video at this point is good as you can really see a water snake close up.
