Costa Rica - Green Vine Snake by lux69aeterna Costa Rica - Green Vine Snake by lux69aeterna
The green vine snake or Oxybelis Fulgidus can be found in Latin America. It grows up to 2m long and is 2cm thick. It is an arboreal snake, so it's mostly found high up in the canopy. Their most favourite preys are mice, rats and lizards. And last but not least, it is a non-venomous snake. I would not close in to 45cm if he had been!

Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica.

Nikon D300, Nikon 17-55mm, B+W UV Filter.

Merci beaucoup Claire :) Ce serpent, heureusement n'est pas venimeux, mais difficile à trouver comme il vis plutôt dans les arbres, il faut avoir de la chance de le voir par terre à la recherches de proies, ou d'un autre arbre pour y nicher :) En 9 mois j'en au trouvé que 2 ou 3 dans les parcs nationaux...
