We had a special guest on property today! This is a plain bellied water snake. Native to Texas watersheds they sometimes get confused for venomous snakes. These harmless helpers eat smaller animals, helping humans with pests like mice! Signs of snakes on your property mean you have a healthy yard and ecosystem. Don’t fear snakes! They are harmless to humans as long as you give them space and don’t try to touch or move them. #nativewildlife #TexasWildlife
