Nancy here: We spent two days kayaking the Silver River near Ocala, Florida. See the previous blog to read about our time on the river. If you love to see wildlife and have the chance to kayak here, it can’t be beat. There will be a lot of photos in this blog. I took over 600 photos and managed to whittle it down to these favorites!!
After a little more research, I believe this is really a non-poisonous Water Snake.
A Water Moccasin has bands, not blotches around its body.
