Common Blunt Headed Snake (Imantodes cenchoa)
We originally thought this was a Cat-Eyed Tree Snake because of its large, protruding eyes but after a bit more research we believe this to be a Common Blunt-Headed Snake. He was lying in the bananas waiting for a gecko to pass but instead he found Barry’s lens. He was cooperative and didn’t attempt to strike. These snakes have a weak venom on their rear fangs that is intended to slow down their prey so that they can fit it all in without further struggles. – Found in late November 2011 in San Miguel de Matina, Limon.
