Anybody know anything about snakes

I found this snake under a rock around my pond. Was wondering what kind it is. Appears to be harmless but would like to know for sure.

You think? I've never seen one like this before. We just moved and have a large pasture, with a large pond, right behind us so could just be a different variety than I'm used to seeing.

Pretty cool looking snake, would like it to hang around if it's not a problem.

When I found a snake I didn't recognize I took a picture like you did and then google searched my state and "snake pictures" until I found a good site to help me id it.

About how big is it?

Looks like a banded water snake. They are harmless and a neat little snake. Here is a close up pic of a head shot. You can tell better than we can from the pic.

Safe but mean, right? I had a baby in my house some time ago. Put in a 5g bucket and he tried a number of times to strike - from in the bucket - 18 inches deep. Mine, was of course in the east (Maryland) and was more greyish colored, and mean.
