Hi LuckyLogan. Thanks for sharing this snake. My wife and I and our 4 kids spent one whole summer in Belize. Only saw a couple snakes. I have a mission for coral snakes https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/240... and would be honored to have one from Belize if you wouldn't mind adding this. Thanks.

Brilliant. Scary because it is highly venomous.
