Rough Green Snake

Opheodrys aestivus

Description:

The rough green snake has a bright green back with a bright yellow belly, allowing for perfect camouflage in the trees. They are known for being very docile and often don't mind humans approaching them, and are reluctant to bite.

Habitat:

They are found in the Southeastern US and Northern Mexico in lower elevations near water. The best way to find them is at night, spotlighting into the trees near water where they sleep, their bright green color will stick out against the leaves when the light hits them.
