Satiny Parrot Snake


On our Costa Rican tour, we often made night hikes, with hopes of seeing frogs. During a walk at the Arenal Observatory Lodge on 9 July 2017, Erika was startled by a strange-shaped tree branch. It turned out to be a Satiny Parrot Snake. These reptiles feed on lizards, frogs and small snakes (Wikipedia). The species is found from Central America and most of northern South America.
