Northern Snail-eating Snake

Dipsas pavonina
Schlegel, 1837
Madre Selva field station, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 14, 2013.

Another snail-eater – differentiated from Dipsas catesbyi by the elongated dark saddles (for catesbyi they are smaller, and more like round or oval spots). Not a common find, opposed to Dipsas catesbyi, which can be found nearly every night in the forest.
