Green-headed Treesnake (Mexican Parrot Snake)

Leptophis mexicanus


Ruins at Tulum.


My wife Bridgette who is terrified of snakes managed to find one by almost sitting on it. As she sat on a rock it hissed at her, cue vertical take-off and ignoring my assurances that it was only a Green-headed Tree Snake (Parrot Snake) and it wasn’t poisonous she stood well back whilst I got a picture. This was the same species of snake she had run away from in Belize last year.
