Brown Blunt-headed Vine Snake (Imantodes cenchoa)
1/13/2011 – While out frog-hunting at night, I came across this beautiful little Brown Blunt-headed Vine Snake (Imantodes cenchoa). It’s about 3 feet long with a pencil-thin body and a head the size of a small olive. It’s slightly venomous but mostly targets sleeping anoles. When I came back with a wide-angle lens to photograph this snake, I came across a 5 foot Fur de Lance, one of the deadliest snakes in Central America. They are very poisonous, very aggressive, and are known to attack toward the flash light at night. The local guide told me to old the flash light away from my body so I don’t get chomped in the chest or head.
