Snake ID
I have always called snakes like this rat snakes or chicken snakes and really don't know the true name. What says the Outdoor board?

No water around. Just in my yard. There is no pond within a mile. Guess it doesn't matter.

Looks to me like a Plain Bellied Water Snake

We have them all over Oklahoma. Often misidentified as a Cottonmouth. Completely harmless, however.

Depends on your location, but it is a harmless water snake in the Nerodia genus.

Its clearly either a cottonmouth, a copperhead or a rattler.

I would guess that they bite if the situation calls for it.

Plain bellied water snake for sure. Completely harmless and primarily feed on fish and frogs.
