Many of Tennessee's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Tennessee's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

The snake goes by several different names, including the water pilot, the great water snake, the false moccasin, pied water snake, the southern water snake, and the water rattle.

While found throughout the southeastern United States, including such dates as North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, it can also be found as far west as Missouri, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama. They are snakes that are usually found not too far from sea level, as the highest altitude seen for these reptiles is about 500 feet above sea level.

The brown water snake has a neck that differentiates from many other snakes in that it is a lot narrower than the head area is. On the dorsal side of the snake, it is either brown or a rusty brown color. There also a role of about 25 black or dark brown square patches that go down the backside of the animal. Smaller squares of similar design are seen on the sides of this animal. On its belly it displays a yellow color with black or brown patches.

There are 27 to 33 rows of dorsal scales more than you would find on any snake except for the North American water snake. The brown water snake measures between 30 to 60 inches long with the longest being recorded at 69 inches. They are most often found in swamps or streams, and are frequently mistaken for venomous forms of the snake.

These are another breed of snake that gives birth to young that are living. This means that they do not undergo an egg. Of time before hatching. Mating actually occurs on land, usually in tree branches. The male, which is larger than the female, takes a more dominant role in the copulation process. Somewhere between 14 and 58 snakes are born in the brood with the average number being between 30 and 40. The average newborn is between seven and 10 inches long with the females being slightly smaller than this.

This form of snake frequently includes such things as fish and frogs in its diet. Animals that are frequently found in swamps, streams, and other bodies of water. The brown water snake will eat such things as insects, lizards, and other animals that may come near it. It is a true carnivore, meaning that it will only eat meat as the source of its diet.

While not being a venomous snake, its primary defense is to release a rather foul odor that deters predators from coming around it. This odor acts in much the same way that the anal spray from a skunk is able to scare away potential predators from coming around this animal. Most of the predators to this snake are Hawks or Eagles, animals that are able to fly down near the water and scoop the snake from out of the stream or pond.
