The species is very similar to the standard water snake, but this variety has scales under its eyes. It eats primarily crayfish, frogs and small fish as the standard habitat is in rivers, lakes and streams.

The shape and texture of the scales is the main difference between the rough and the smooth earth snake. This species lives primarily underground and gives birth to live young, not eggs.
8. Heterodon simus

Answer: Southern hognose snake

Southern hognose snakes were listed in the International Union for Conservation of Nature's list of vulnerable species in 2001. That designation means the species could die out without intervention from humans to actively ensure they are protected. In order to be classified as such, there has to be less than 10,000 known to be alive in the wild.

Answer: Midland water snake

This is a subspecies of the northern water snake and, as such, has similar habitats, mating and dietary concerns as the larger species. It lives in marshes, ponds, streams and other watery habitats.
10. Elaphe guttata guttata

Answer: Corn snake

In the wild, corn snakes live to an age of six to eight years and grow to between two and six feet in length. In captivity, the life span can be much greater. Corn snakes typically live within overgrown fields, wooded areas and other seldom travelled areas.
