Snake of the Day: Rough Green Snake

Walking through the woods you may catch a glimpse of this snake, but look above your head rather than below your feet! Rough Green Snakes are the bright green tree-climbers of Texas. These snakes are arboreal, meaning that they climb/live in trees.

Rough Green Snakes are small and thin, reaching only 22-32″ in length. They are bright green with yellow underbellies, some with white coloring near their heads.

These snakes are another species that are beneficial to humans — they eat many of the bugs that we find to be pests. Among these are crickets, grasshoppers, moths, and spiders.
