: 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...

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.
