Yucatán Blunt-headed Tree Snake

Imantodes tenuissimus
(Cope, 1867)
Yucatán, Mexico. June 29, 2016.

This snake is found in the upper third of the Yucatán peninsula, and I suspect it is far more common than sightings would indicate. It is similar to the larger and more far-reaching Imantodes cenchoa, but I. tenuissimus lacks the enlarged row of vertebral scales found in I. cenchoa.
