Idiom: a snake in the grass

Pin It

A snake in the grass is a hidden enemy: a friend or associate who is secretly treacherous.

Example of use:

1. Be careful what you tell your new friend. Aleja said he's a snake in the grass.

2. Don't trust her. She's a real snake in the grass. She told lies about Jim to everyone at work.
