A friend of mine encoutered this snake species last night in the interrior of Suriname. What do you guys think? I'm thinking maybe a Thamnodynastes sp. Although i'm not fully convinced.

Very nice photos! :thumbs_up:

I'd say it's a Dendrophidion dendrophis, but hopefully the experts can chip in with their opinions, too.

Give my regards to Fred!

Cheers, Auke

I just received a message from Marinus Hoogmoed, who informs me that it looks like a juvenile Pseustes sulphureus to him. He appears to be not fully convinced though.

I am certain about the ID, based on scalation and colour pattern.
