good-looking snake. I like the way he's coiled-up.

Thank You for that information Jonathan! I looked up the Jabiru, they are beautiful birds. Thanks again!

Not sure in the south, in CR the most similar birds are Jabiru, and storks. We don´t have cranes----

Your photos are Awesome

Thats very interesting that there are 10 colors! If you get a chance, Could you tell Nicole and if there are cranes in the South America region?
Thank You!

It is very poisonous, but not aggressive, it is fast enough to catch a hummingbird in flight.
I have seen like 10 variations of colors in the same species.....

Muy bonita!

Esta muestra líneas a lo largo del cuerpo, lo que es inusual. Es mas común ver parches de colores.
