Rough Green Snake (Opheodrys aestivus), at the Cane Creek Lake, North Carolina.
The Rough Green Snake is a non-venomous North American snake. It is called sometimes Grass Snake or Green Grass Snake, but these names are more commonly applied to the Smooth Green Snake (Opheodrys vernalis). The Rough Green Snake is docile, often allowing close approach by humans, and seldom, if ever, bites.
The snake is bright green above and has a yellowish belly, affording it excellent camouflage in green vegetation. It grows up to 46 inches in length and is very thin. The Rough Green Snake ranges throughout the Southeastern United States, from Kansas and Texas east to New Jersey and south to Florida. Its preferred habitat is moist meadows and woodlands, often near water. It is highly arboreal, frequently found climbing in low vegetation, and is also a good swimmer. However it is often found on the ground as well. Unlike many snakes, it is largely diurnal. Its diet consists mostly of insects and other terrestrial arthropods, but some snails and tree frogs are eaten as well. This snake is not a constrictor - most prey are grabbed and simply swallowed alive.
Predators of the Rough Green Snake include birds, spiders, and other snakes, such as the Eastern Racer, Coluber constrictor and the Eastern King snake, Lampropeltis getula.
