Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Coronella austriaca is a harmless colubrid species found in northern and central Europe, but also as far east as northern Iran. The EMBL currently recognizes three subspecies, including the typical form described here.Both sexes grow to an average length of about 50 cm. Two specimens measuring 83 cm have been recorded in Sweden, as well as one in Ukraine near Chernobyl that was 92 cm.The head has a rostral scale that is at least as deep as it is wide, creating a triangular indentation between the internasals (rarely separating them). The top of the head is covered with 9 large plates. The nasal scale is often divided. There is 1 (rarely 2) preoculars and 2 postoculars. The temporals number 2+2 (rarely 1+2) or 2+3. There are 7 (rarely 8) upper labials, of which the 3rd and 4th or 4th and 5th border the eye.show more
