-Junior Editor Quit en- GREEN SNAKES QREEVI AS A THE ettEEH SNAKte SHAKE- ALSO ATTRACTIV& AND QUESTION: What is a grass snake like? ANSWER: It is interesting that our correspondent is writing from Nova Scotia, Canada, which is just about as far North as we can expect to find snakes. The grass snake is more generally known as the Green Snake, because its body color is a pale leaf green. With its smooth satiny scales and that color so unusual in an animal, this snake is most interesting and attractive. It is about 15 inches long, likes to eat crickets, grasshoppers and spiders — a special treat being the caterpillars of moths found in its area. It is particularly harmless, since it lacks any trace of poison glands or fangs. We illustrate another handsome little serpent, also harmless and also reaching into Southern Canada. The yellow ring around its neck gives it the name of Ring-necked Snake. Its body color is a lustrous gray, with yellow or orange underneath. Slightly larger than the Green Snake, it is often found under flat stones in woodsy localities and lives on worms, small salamanders and insects. While both these snakes are harmless, we do not recommend that you pick them up, as you might confuse them with the poisonous Copperhead, which also haunts woodland localities. (Valerie Hawkins of Bras D' Or, C. B., Canada, wins a prize for this question.
