Can you spot the snake?

There is a snake in this photo - it's a small baby watersnake! 

  • During our June camps we found two baby water snakes.
  • This one was in McDonald Creek, hunting small fish (see the video below), and the other one was in the river.
  • People often mistake our local watersnakes for venomous Copperheads or Cottonmouths.
  • Neither of these venomous snakes are found in northeastern Illinois. But if you head further south in llinois you will find them there.
