Brown Vine Sanke

Oxybelis brevirostris


Slender snake with a brown upper coloration and a white belly and throat. Found in the thin branches of bushes and small trees where it relies on it's similarity to a vine to remain hidden from predators and prey.


Bushes at the edge of a forest.


This one allowed me to get very close as it seemed to think I didn't see it.
