Northern Rough Greensnake

Opheodrys aestivus aestivus


Small wiry species. This one just under 2 ft long. As this species approaches a potential prey item it usually sways back and forth. This actually disguises its approach as the movement replicates vegetation swaying in the wind. See videos:


Spotted at White Oak State Park. Mixed forest.
