Brown Water Snake


  • Average size is between 30 and 60 inches
  • Are often confused for Water Moccasins
  • Commonly found basking on tree branches over the water

Brown Watersnakes are large semi-aquatic snakes found commonly near water sources in southeast Alabama. They are often confused for Water Moccasins and seldom seen far from permanent water sources, however these snakes are not venomous. They will bite if cornered and the bite can be painful because of the snakes large size. The snake is brown to rusty brown and is marked by black square marking down its back and the neck is distinctly narrower than the head.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
