I saw a snake. It has a ring around its head. It has dots on its back. It lives in Portugal and Spain and France. It is the most common snake in Europe. They live by the river or a stream or a pond or a lake. They also live by edges of forests and woodlands, grasslands, and gardens. They like to eat frogs and toads and fish. Some grass snakes lay from 8 to 40 eggs. They can live up to 15 years.
