Mussurana, Clelia clelia

Photo by Bob Thomas, Chiquibul National Forest, Cayo District, Belize, March 2005.

This juvenile mussurana was found along a trail deep in the Chiquibul National Forest.  Someone had been chopping on a felled tree and they chopped the snake.  A lizard is protruding from the wound.

Adult mussurana’s are generally black.  They eat other snakes and, like other non-threatening snakes, should be left alone.
