Two Females One Male

Black Snake Trio

by helvi2

In the image I posted before this, I promised to show the group shot of the three Black Northern Water snakes. (I counted three heads.) I said there were two males and a female, but I was wrong. There are actually two females in this shot and one male. I have never seen that before, even in mating season which is going on now. The females are the larger snakes leaving the males as the smaller one. The place I go has a chalkboard where visitors can write down the sightings of the day. On one particular day someone wrote they saw the female with two of her offspring. The said offspring... were actually two grown males. It's easy to think that when you see how much smaller the male is from the female. Snakes lay eggs and do not raise their offspring though their might be some snakes that give live birth. Not positive about the later. Hope you enjoy the shot! Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by! :o) Helvi
