Both are very similar in appearance also. Territories are similar and both occur in Texas.

Pretty sure that is a Rough Greensnake. My dad always called them a grass snake.

Saw one near my stand early last season. Green color was very bright. First I'd seen in Many years. I was 11 or 12 years old and stuck one in my buddy's tackle box. He didn't see the same Humor I did! bolt

Seen two in springtown, Parker county the other day. They were hanging out three feet high in a briar thicket. We were clearing land.
