What Do Snakes Look Like?

Common watersnakes are heavy-bodied with a large rounded head. They are often mistaken for water moccasins, which do not occur in Maryland. They can be found in or near every type of wetland habitat.

Common gartersnakes are greenish in color with a distinct yellow or white stripe down the centerline. They are non-venomous but aggressive snakes. You will find them in forests, meadows, old fields, and sometimes backyards.

Eastern Copperhead snakes are venomous. They are tan with a coppery-red head and hourglass pattern crossbands on its pinkish tan to dark brown back. They have a distinctive triangular and flattened head with facial pits between each eye and nostril.
