Green Vine Snakes (Oxybelis Fulgidus) are Central and South American snakes of the Colubridae family. They are extremely slender snakes that can reach lengths of 6.5 feet.
The range of Green Vine Snakes extends from Mexico all the way down to Bolivia and into Argentina, making it common throughout Central and South America.
Green Vine Snakes are arboreal (tree) snakes which reside most often in rainforests and surrounding vegetation.
The diet of this snake consists mostly of lizards and birds. Some Green Vine Snakes specialise in small hummingbirds, positioning themselves near flowers where the birds feed and striking from close distance.
The colouration and size of Green Vine Snakes make them perfectly adapted for life in the trees. Their green colouration blends in well with vegetation, and their slender size can give them the illusion of being vines.
Because of its distinctive appearance and wide range throughout South and Central America, the Green Vine Snake is a very well-known representative of rainforest reptiles.
