amiller, your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Great spotting, amiller! I just wonder if this isn't a Madagascar tree boa (Sanzinia madagascariensis). The pattern on the body and the shape of the head with clear heat-sensitive pits on the lips makes me think it is a Madagascar tree boa.
