The smooth green snake is found in a variety of habitats such as grassy, moist meadows, prairies, and clearings in pine forests. This snake is often spotted crossing bike or hiking trails, or brought home by our kitty's or puppy dogs on the hunt =P. These sly guys rely on their color for camouflage and will usually attempt to escape if threatened. Their diet consists of soft bodied arthropods, including crickets, spiders, moths, butterflies, and grasshoppers!They are thin bodied and their adult length can reach 12 to 20 inches! They rarely bite when handled, but will smear a captor's hand with a musky anal secretion.
