Aquatic Coral Snake

Micrurus surinamensis
(Cuvier, 1817)
Madre Selva field station, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 15, 2011.

My first surinamensis was an emaciated adult, in very poor condition. We took its picture and released it in a shallow creek, where I hope it survived somehow. On subsequent trips, I usually see quite a few of these fish-eating coral snakes, usually along the banks of small streams in the rain forest.
