Coral Mud Snake

Hydrops triangularis
(WAGLER, 1824)
Madre Selva field station, Maynas, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 15, 2011.

This species is a mimic of the aquatic coral snake, Micrurus surinamensis. This particular snake was very thin – either food was scarce, or it had something wrong with it. It was photographed and then released to minimize stress.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
