Western Natal Green snake fights huge Gecko

The Smooth green snake is a “small medium” North American nonvenomous snake. It gets its common name from its smooth dorsal scales. It is uniform light green on its back, with a yellow or white belly. At birth, its dorsal coloration is different than when it matures.

At first, it can be olive green, blue-gray, or even brown, but after it sheds its skin for the first time, it becomes the characteristic bright green.

The dorsal coloration can also vary depending on location: bluish in Kansas, olive-tinted light brown in southeastern Texas, and bronze in northern Wisconsin. A non-aggressive snake, it seldom bites and usually flees when threatened.
