  colubridae
The tails of the colubrids are normally cylindrical and pointed and in some species the last few teeth on the maxilla are enlarged and grooved hence these are known as ‘rear-fanged snakes’.
Being the largest snake family, Colubridae members occupy a variety of diverse habitats.
The snakes can be divided into four ecological categories according to their habitats namely, Fossorial (live inside soil), Terrestrial (live on the ground), Arboreal (live on shrubs and trees) and Aquatic (live in water), where the last habitat can be furthermore divided as Freshwater, Brackish water and Marine.
