Caption: Grass snake. Close-up of the head of a grass snake (Natrix natrix). These non-venomous reptiles are common and widespread across Europe, but are absent from Ireland, the Balearics, Malta and Crete. They are often found near water where they feed primarily on frogs and toads, but may take newts and fish, being able to swim and hunt in water. Photographed on Higher Hyde Heath, Dorset, UK, in July.
