The western false smooth snake or Iberian false smooth snake (Macroprotodon brevis) is a species of colubrid snake found on the Iberian Peninsula and Morocco.[2] Its natural habitats include evergreen temperate forests and Mediterranean-style scrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss, largely the result of agriculture and faces some threat from the wild boar.[1]
