Green and black tree snake

Green and black tree snake, Rhamnophis aethiopissa aethiopissa, on the beach near the mouth of the Nyanga River.

Appearing to have washed ashore, a meter-long Green and black tree snake lies motionless on the beach as I pass by to fish the Nyanga River mouth. An unusual location for a tree snake to be found, perhaps it washed ashore after being carried out of the river on floating debris. This snake will be at risk of predation unless it can find its way back to the forest. It is a beautiful snake, like a string of emeralds lying in the sand.
