Almost stepped on this when I went out on the porch to see if there were any moth activity outside. It was about 35 cm long and a juvenile. Quite a surprise when you're not expecting it. Only the second snake I've seen on my property in the 6 years I've been here.

That is very interesting, Johan. This is a non-venomous snake, but it carries all the distinctive markings of Brazilian venomous snakes: triangular head, vertical pupil and the tail that suddenly narrows near the end. No one of the Brazilian colubrids is like that.
