Northern Rough Greensnake

northern rough greensnake

The northern rough greensnake is a long and slender snake often seen in the Ozarks. It is light green above and has a white or yellowish belly. Scales on the back have small ridges or keels, making it feel rough to the touch. Unlike the similar smooth greensnake (O. vernalis), it is fairly common in Missouri.
