This snake is largely arboreal, spending most of it's time in the trees. The long and slender body form helps it wind from branch to branch without falling.
Opheodrys is a genus of small to medium-sized colubrid snakes commonly referred to as green snakes. In North America the genus consists of two distinct species. As their common names imply, the Rough Green Snake has keeled dorsal scales, whereas the Smooth Green Snake has smooth dorsal scales.
