I was watching this water snake chase a school of minnows and he came up with a small bullhead in his mouth! I guess when your're hungry you will eat anything.

From the movie Hombre

Audra Favor: I can't imagine eating a dog and not thinking anything of it.

John Russell: You even been hungry, lady? Not just ready for supper. Hungry enough so that your belly swells?

Audra Favor: I wouldn't care how hungry I got. I know I wouldn't eat one of those camp dogs.

John Russell: You'd eat it. You'd fight for the bones, too.

Audra Favor: Have you ever eaten a dog, Mr. Russell?

John Russell: Eaten one and lived like one.

Audra Favor: Dear me.

Wow! That's a pretty cool thing to see. I've seen a lot of these snakes over the summer back when I used to fish the Kankakee River. One time I was fishing from the shore and suddenly I hear something brushing in the grass behind me, I turn around and a snake is chasing a small mouse that was running right at me. After I turned around the snake stopped looked at me and turned around, it was pretty exciting to see. The mouse had jumped in to some tall grass by the shore. :D :) :lol: :shock:

Cool snake pic 8)

Northern water snakes are commonly mistaked for moccasins, which are not native to this part of the state. The water snakes will still pack a nasty bite if you harass them though. No venom obviously, but still painful. The only venomous snake around here is the eastern massasauga rattlesnake, which are very rare.
