its probab;y a rough green snake. feed it crickets and other arthropods,even it doesnt seem to be interested. try giving it earthworms, or other small bugs found in you area as long as there are no pesticides. also just leave the crickets in there with it. Also, how large is the tank? That could be stressing him. Also is the animal wild caught? if so just let it go if it refuses to eat. Green snakes(ophios) normally are not very tame even after being in captivity for a while. if you want a snake, get something easier to take care of. im currently in biology and i am lending my water snake that i found to the teacher until the end of the year for examination. try getting something like a garter or corn snake if your dead set on snakes.
