: : Please read my response to Bob...Thank you for all your help also...
: : Have you ever seen what happens when a child or dog gets bitten by a cotten mouth or water snake.
: : Its not a pretty sight.....

: How'd water snakes (genus Nerodia) get dumped into this? They're harmless, and while a bite from one will bleed a bit, it's hardly a worse sight than a scraped knee or even a bad papercut...

: Patrick Alexander

By water snake I assume she means Water moccasin, which is the same as a Cotton mouth. In either case the best thing to do is to leave it alone. Most snake bites in the U.S. occur from people Purposely interfering with a poisonous snake rather then by accident or by the aggressive intent of the snake.
