Nerodia get such a bad rap. They really are sweet snakes. Sure, if you catch one out in the wild, it is going to tear you a new one. But in captivity they are 100% opposite. They are so incredibly laid back and just a pleasure to keep. Not to mention, gorgeous.

Nerodia erythrogaster erythrogaster, red bellied water snake (juvenile)



Nerodia cyclopion , green water snake (the rare red phase, and an extremely awesome one at that)



Nerodia taxispilota, brown water snake. My personal favorite normal for their incredibly crisp and neat pattern.


Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, florida banded water snakes, these are my 8 holdbacks from my cherry x pale hypo clutch. Why 8? By holding back so many, of different color patterns and varieties I will be able to figure out in the future what a baby will look like as an adult, as well as continue selectively breeding for different looks. There is so much going on with this group and it will be cool to see how they mature!

Here are the males



here are the females
