In February, I found this snake near Palumeu. Any ID?

Thanx!

One of the participants in my tour found the name: Thalesius viridis, formerly known as Xenodon werneri.

Thanx!

The present name is Xenodon werneri, after it was called Thalesius viridis for some time (see The Reptile Database). It's a fairly dangerous venomous snake, albeit not deadly to humans.

Cheers, Auke :-)
