Postby Julius Zidorn » Sat Feb 18, 2017 9:55 pm

Hi,

I am in Costa Rica right now for vacation and herping.
During the last days I found two snakes I couldn´t identify

I hope anyone could help me :)

Cheers,
Julius

Top one looks like Coniophanes fissidens.

Second one could be Sibon nebulatus?

Coniophanes fissidens +1

I would say the other snake is Sibon dimidiatus.
