Rough green snake

Opheodrys aestivus

Description:

The rough green snake is docile, often allowing close approach by humans, and seldom bites. 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.

Habitat:

Mason Farm Biological Reserve
