That is probably The fer-de-lace. That is one of the most venomous snakes in Central and South America

Hey Dunier... it sure looks good. It would be nice to add a second pic - a color version if you have it for comparison. Also others can then know what the snake really looks like.

Mark, this is a fully adult snake ( about 2.3 mt length) . I wanted to focus the texture of the skin (squamas), so I took some pictures and at the end I thought b/w highlights the wanted effect.
Also I am beginning to understand my camera.
