A fascinating species of snake that can be found in various regions of Europe. One of its most distinctive characteristics is its slender body, which can grow up to 39 in (1.2 m) in length. Its coloration varies from light brown to gray, with a series of dark brown or black spots running along its back.
What sets the European cat snake apart from other snakes is its ability to flatten its body when threatened, making it appear much wider and more intimidating. This, combined with its impressive speed and agility, allows it to evade predators with ease. Another unique feature of this snake is its keen eyesight, which is highly developed and allows it to spot potential prey from a distance.
