It was such an awesome little snake - It was already hooding up when I reached it and continued to do so even when it made its escape - I'll post the video when I get a chance!

I know, no turtles... We canoed through some delightful spots with calm water, partially submerged logs and rocky edges but found nothing - and didn't hear any plops of them escaping either! (although my mind would have been on Nerodia at the time, I'm sure that's not an acceptable excuse!). Next time!

Thanks for reading
