Northern Rough Greensnake

Opheodrys aestivus aestivus


These snakes are one of my favorites. They're green with a white or yellowish belly, and "rough" refers to their keeled scales. They're very docile snakes, not aggressive at all. This one was found when I worked on the Mofep Project.


Missouri Ozarks, forest. To be honest I've found them in lots of places, they're easy to spot when they're crossing roads (a bright green snake does stand out) or at night with flashlights (look for them in the trees of course).


I really dont understand why this site insisted on rotating my photo, but it did. Enjoy the different perspective (lol).
