|Grass Snake, showing the round pupil: R. Harris|
|Showing the well mark collar and head scale arrangement.|
Note also the keeled dorsal scales on the body.
|'Playing dead' is the second line of defence - the first|
is covering you in a foul smelling white substance
from their post-anal gland. Not pleasant!
|Amazingly long tongue! Forked quite deeply and used|
to taste their surroundings.
|Showing the fork in the tongue more clearly.|
|The large supraocular gives a mean look to the face.|
|The 'checkerboard' ventral scales can be clearly seen here.|
