At first glance I thought I had stumbled across a cottonmouth! Then, I took a look at it's pupils and they were rounded. A sat with him/her for awhile and drew them in a little herp sketchbook of mine. I got a little stupid and decided to literally pet the poor fellow :p. He didnt strike but just looked a little surprised! I left him alone after a while, but came back out to try to see him again. While i didn't spot him, I found what I assume to be his/her home!

I believe that he's either a diamondback water snake, or a common watersnake :D What do you guys think? I live in Tennessee to give some parameters.

I think you are the got dang Disney princess of watersnakes, that's what I think. (I don't know much about watersnakes, sorry, but this is really neat!)
