Brown Vinesnake

Oxybelis aeneus
(WAGLER, 1824)
Sonora, Mexico. August 23, 2011.

We were driving along a rutted gravel road when Kris spotted a vine snake moving along a wire fence about fifty feet away from the road. It was a great spot of a great snake! We saw another specimen later under similar circumstances – the snake was stretched out along a barb wire fence. It pays to watch the fences when in Mexico.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
