Rough Greensnake Opheodrys aestivus - Special Concern

The Rough Greensnake lives in the extreme southern quarter of the state. Much longer than the Smooth Greensnake, it is more arboreal and has rough instead of smooth scales. They are more likely to be encountered along willow-lined streams. Females lay the eggs in communal nests often in hollow trees on upland sites. LENGTH: 24”–30”
