The Smooth Greensnake blends in very well with the grassy areas that it is generally found in. This species is listed as a Species of Special Concern in Pennsylvania due to its declining numbers. Recent records of the Smooth Greensnake are limited for many counties across the state.
This one was found along the Ghost Town Trail. The Smooth Greensnake is completely harmless to humans.
