Taxonomic rank: Family
Taxonomy according to: www.faunaeur.org
Reference:
Remark: Only 17 out of almost 2,000 Colubrids of the World are recorded for Georgia (less than 1%). For the moment, 303 genera are described for this family (extraordinary efforts of taxonomists-splitters!), and 8 genera have their Georgian representatives. 17 representatives of genera Coronella,Coluber, Eirenis, Elaphe, Hemorrhois, Hierophis, Malpolon, Natrix, and Telescopus are found in Georgia, whereas 121 species of these genera live in Eurasia and Africa, thus Georgian fauna counts 14% of the species aggregated in these 9 genera.
