Green Snakes of the Eastern Cape

This list includes all the green snakes that can be found in the Eastern Cape. Barring the boomslang (Dispholidus typus), all the individuals listed come from the genus Philothamnus and they are all closely related. Although the many-spotted snake (Amplorhinus multimaculatus) can be found in the Eastern Cape, it has not been included on this list because not all individuals in this species are green, some are olive-brown. In the Eastern Cape, the boomslang  is not green. Females are olive and males are yellow and black. Irrespective of this, the boomslang has been included at the end of the list.
