Coral Snake, Coralillo commented on by Tukup Alfaro, Provincia Alajuela, Costa Rica just now

Just checked Reptile DataBase and nigrocinctus is the only subspecies found in Costa Rica, so if you want to update the name to Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus, I think that would be correct. Thanks from the snake too for letting it go :-)

Coral Snake, Coralillo commented on by Tukup Alfaro, Provincia Alajuela, Costa Rica 5 minutes ago

Hi Gilma. Just searching my contacts for coral snakes and found this beauty. I just started a new mission: Coral Snakes of the World (https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/240...). If you're interested, I would love to have this posted to that mission. FYI, the "red on yellow kill a fellow, red on black, venom lack" only works north of the Rio Grande. In Mexico, Central and South america, they can be in any order. Half the corals here in our area are "red on black," very venomous. Thanks for posting this long ago :-)

Was raised from caterpillar to adult.A very common species in our area.They come every year if you got their host plant pentas. The females lay a lot of eggs, as the plants foliage will be gone in a day or two.

Chinese Mantis favorited by Tukup Virginia, USA 13 minutes ago

This one is likely a male due to size and ability to fly. Large green and brown mantis. Eyes appear black at night. Triangular shaped head with lateral stripes between the eyes. This species has been introduced to North America and is larger than most native species here.
