Short-nosed Vine Snake

About the Short-Nosed Vine Snake

The Short-Nosed Vine Snake has a thin, long body with smooth scales smooth and pointed snout. They can be green, yellow or pale grey in colour. Often black and white interscale patterns present from the neck to much of the mid body - these black interscale regions join to give appearance of thin longitudinal lines on the forebody.

Vine snakes rely on camouflage for safety and their venomous fangs for hunting. Because of their colouration they easily blend into the surrounding foliage, where they prey on lizards, frogs and birds.

Another method of camouflage is extending the tongue in a straight line from their mouth, to further enhance their branch-like appearance
