not that uncommon to come across small snakes here where searching for bottles , not 100 % sure what type of snake this one was , might be an eastern water snake . it was in a grassly / leave area near some wetlands near a road

I took a picture cause I though it was neat , very friendly barely even moved or did anything when I was nearby

yet to ever see the massassuga rattler snake which is native to my area although more common along Georgian bay , mostly see garter snakes which are common here

Looks like an Eastern Hognose to me. They are harmless but grow pretty big will puff up like a Cobra if threatened (which usually scares people more). I believe they are considered endangered species in Ontario

Must be nice to have water snakes that don't kill you. Water moccasin snakes here are very aggressive and very poisonous.!
