Need help identifying a snake

Asked April 5, 2017, 5:04 PM EDT

I came across a snake yesterday, and I'm having a hard time trying to find help to identify it. I'm pretty sure it's not poisonous. I live on Bear Creek in Dundalk.

We think this is a fat and happy northern water snake.
They are very common and non-venomous, and should be left alone.

Thank you so much for quick response. I did leave it alone. It was gone yesterday, but I felt better when I saw it and knew where it was.
