: A small bright emerald green
snake with smooth scales. Belly may be white or light yellow.
Habitat: Wet meadows
Size: Typical adult size: 36-51 cm (14-22 in).
Natural History: One of the rarest snakes in Nebraska,
but the places they have be spotted are surprisingly wide spread
(see map). The Smooth Green Snake is active during the day but
in the dense, green vegetation of moist meadows they are difficult
to spot. If handled, this snake may try to bite, but because
of its small size, it is unlike to make much of a wound.
