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.

Hi there. First, awesome image! As others have noted, love the expression.

Second, I was wondering if I could get permission to share this image on From Quarks to Quasars. www.facebook.com/fromquarkstoq… Here's our handy website. www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/
We cover pretty much all things science, and sometime post images of interesting organisms, astrophotography, etc. 

You can reach me at contact@fromquarkstoquasars.com

Regardless of your response, thanks much for your time, and great work.

I was certain vine snakes WERE venomous, just mildly.

Oxybelis fulgidus is rear-fanged venomous, and not necessarily mildly. If you are allergic to the toxic saliva, then you will have a pretty nasty allergic reaction.
