Many-banded Green Snake
   
   

Family : COLUBRIDAE
Species : Ptyas multicinctus
Maximum Size : 107 cm

Ptyas multicinctus inhabits forested, hilly areas in parts of northern Laos, Vietnam and southern China. In 2018, a roadkill specimen from eastern Uttaradit Province, Thailand was described, which thus extended its known range to the west (Hauser, 2018). The most common name for the species is Many-banded Green Snake.

Its body is moderately robust, its head is larger than its body, and its eyes are moderately large. The anterior portion of its body is green, and the posterior part of its body and its entire tail is brownish-green or greyish, typically with numerous broken cream bars, edged with black.

Nothing is known of the ecology of this species, except that is it diurnal in habits and largely terrestrial.
