I am coming across a-lot of snakes lately. This one, a Rough Green Snake, was in the grass by a forest today in New Jersey, USA
Sadly it wasn’t alive. It appeared to have a crease area several inches below its head, either run over by a bike or injured some other way.
I placed it deeper into the woods before I left the area, but what a beautiful animal it was.
Harmless, may emit a foul odor if captured, but otherwise, safe towards humans.
