The grass snake, sometimes called the ringed snake or water snake, is a Eurasian non-venomous snake. It is often found near water and feeds almost exclusively on amphibians. It is typically dark green or brown in colour with a characteristic yellow collar behind the head, which explains the alternative name ringed snake.
