Not sure what kind of snake this is. Opened the garage door and there it was.


Compared to an actual copperhead that was in our swimming pool a few years back.

The pupils in the eyes are round, so I think this is a water snake.

The coloration is fascinating...

It's definately a pit viper and one to be avoided, IMHO.

If not a Copperhead, then what?

Unfortunately this snake's head met up with a 2" ball attached to a trailer hitch. Too bad, good looking snake.

The colors are pretty amazing.

The color pattern is unusually bright, but that is a juvenile broad-banded water snake (Nerodia fasciata confluens. Here's a picture with similar coloration (although yours is brighter) - broad-banded watersnake picture

This is definitely NOT a copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix)or a water moccasin (Agkistrodon piscivorus). The head scalation is not correct. Head shape is not correct. Pupil of eye is round. Scales are too weakly keeled. A copperhead or water moccasin this size would have a bright yellow or green tail. Tail shape is not a widely useful character for snake identification.
