Northern Water Snake

January 28, 2005

Barrie, Ontario, Canada


This is a photo I took about two years ago. This was my pet water snake. I kept him in a terrarium that was made up of 1/3 water and 2/3 land. I used to feed him about a dozen small, live fish every week and I always loved watching him hunt and catch them.

During the last two winters that he stayed with us, he experienced a little bit of trouble with wanting to hibernate when the climate was warm indoors. I let him go during the spring near where I had rescued him from road construction back in 1999.

He is missed.
