For our first semiaquatic snake we will be heading to Eurasia as we have the grass snake. The grass snake has quite a confusing name as although it can be found in grassland areas it's more of an aquatic species. The grass snake normally hunts in ponds, rivers and lakes for amphibians.

For our next semiaquatic species we will be heading over to the indo pacific as we have the the yellow lipped sea krait. Sea kraits are a group of venomous sea snakes that thrive in the worlds oceans. The yellow lipped sea krait has extremely toxic venom but is actually a very docile species and is very unlikely to bite humans. The yellow lipped sea krait uses its toxic venom to hunt conger eels and moray eels.

For our next semiaquatic snake we will be heading over to south America as we have the green anaconda. The green anaconda is one of the longest and also the heaviest snake in the world. It tends to be found in slower moving water where it feeds on a wide range of reptiles birds and mammals.

For our final semiaquatic snake species we will be heading to the freshwaters of north America as we have the copperbelly water snake. The copperbelly water snake is a non venomous water snake that primarily feeds on amphibians and small fish. The copperbelly water snake is listed as vulnerable to extinction due to loss of habitat and pollution.

Finally we move onto our imposter the ocellated snake eel. The ocellated snake eel has a very confusing name but it is actually a snake like fish. The ocellated snake eel moves along the substrate in a very similar way to how snakes move on land.
