No field guide is perfect, however. I live right on the Rio Grande in South Texas. There is an agricultural canal passing through my property. The distribution maps in this field guide indicate that the only species of water snake in my area is the diamondback watersnake. Indeed, the canal is filled with diamondback watersnakes and, until a couple of days ago, that is the only kind of 'watersnake' I've seen there. Yes, I've seen a few garter snakes and Indigo snakes swimming in the canal but no other species. Anyway, I spotted a snake in the canal that wasn't any of these preceding species. I saw it at a range of 25 feet. It floated high and kept its head about an inch above the water. It was black with narrow yellow transverse stripes. It was about four feet long and, although fairly heavy bodied, was perhaps a little more gracile than cottonmouths I've encountered in Louisiana [and I've encountered a lot of them]. Still, its a possibility, but, because of distance, I couldn't tell if the head had the characteristic cottonmouth lateral dark stripe.
This field guide's map indicates that the blotched watersnake--which this snake somewhat resembled--shouldn't be in my area, either, although, according to the map, they should occur about 75 miles north. Anyway, if anyone out there has an idea, comment on this post.
I do feel that the price was very high through the dealer that sent it The price on the bar code is $21.95 I paid $60.00 something. If you need it get it, worth it suggest you shop around. Don H. Eustace Texas
