Yeah, unfortunately I did not get the GPS coordinates of many of the sites I visited in Belize, and the Map Search rarely picks up on those small islands. I think the location is pretty close now.

Karen, it was offshore. I posted a photo of the actual island they were on.

Holy cow, that is one adorable snake! I may be partial to snakes but, I think that eyes of that proportion can make anything look way too cute for it's own good..

Nice spot, Karen! I love spadefoot toads. In my experience, they are one of the hardest anuran species to find (in GA, anyway). Also, they have one of my favorite calls :)

Looks like she was in the process of digging out a nest to lay eggs in.

What a lucky find!! These snakes are amazing animals... and I hear they are not easy to come across. Congrats on the find and these incredible pictures you got!

Bluehead Wrasse commented on by marylou.wildlife Belizea year ago

Maria, all wrasse species are born female. Wrasses are protogynous hermaphrodites, meaning females transition to male in the wild as harem conditions and space require. During transition, the females go through two primary phases... initial phase male and terminal phase male. At the terminal phase, a full transition has been completed and the fish is 100% male. Up until that point, they are in an initial phase. In a harem, they will only be one terminal phase male, which is essentially the alpha male.

Jones4, I'm guessing it was around 11-13 cm. It was probably the most delicate little snake I've ever held.
