I never met Grampa Jim, he died before I was born.

21 June 2022 - Grass snake swimming in Neath Canal

https://youtu.be/EeX2KIhQpn8 64.jpg (260841 bytes) I saw this fella swimming in the canal last week and got a lovely close up of him or her so here it is........ 

Does any one know how to tell the sex of a grass snake? 

FB response from Howard Middleton-jones

Females are usually larger - males have a distinctive orange - yellow collar - females less distinctive etc.

FB response from M.N. on Neath Town Talk

Difficult to sex but the female is much larger than the male generally and the head of the female is much more pronounced in being triangular in appearance with eyes deep set into the cheeks whereas the male has an altogether more slender head with eyes that often protrude beyond the line of the face and jaw.
