pits can have stubby little faces
My first inclination is that its not green, it probably has something to do with the bad quality of the pic

do you know where he snake was found?

that looks like either a gopher or a pine snake to me.

the green just looks like a reflection from the leaves surrounding it.

I'd have to say a Pituophis, the thick body looks like a Bull snake to me.

well it sure as hell has the same scales head shape pattern but i have never NEVER seen a green one. but maybe it is because because of the crappy pic. my first guess was a pit of some kind but i started thinking central and south american colubrids. but the only thing i can think of it being would be like some kind of hognose and hognose snakes dont look like that. in that pic its head looks really stubby, but thats probably because its looking into the camera. But it does also look like a painting like katt said.

Ill find out sooner or later
