The Rough Green Snake, Opheoedrys aestivus is a nonpoisonous Colubrid snake that lives in the trees most of the time. This beautiful snake just happened to be on the ground when I was out taking pictures on a May morning.
The Rough Green Snake likes to live in forests near water and they will sometimes be seen in the water. They eat crickets, spiders, grasshoppers, and caterpillars. They are lime green above and beige to yellow below and can become up to 32 inches long. Some folks call these snakes vine snakes. When these snakes die, their green color changes to blue.
