Description from Wikipedia

Natrix maura is a natricine water snake of the genus Natrix. Its common name is viperine water snake or viperine snake. Despite its common names, it is not a member of the subfamily Viperinae. This nonvenomous, semiaquatic, fish-eating snake was given its common names due to behavioural and aesthetic similarities with sympatric adder species.

Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
  • Italy
    Lc - minor preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Valutata specie a Minor Preoccupazione (LC) per la sua ampia distribuzione, per la popolazione presumibilmente numerosa e perché è poco probabile che la specie sia in declino abbastanza rapido per rientrare in una categoria di minaccia.
  • Portugal
    Pouco preocupante (lc) (Source: Livro Vermelho dos Vertebrados de Portugal)
    Pouco Preocupante
