I need an ID (Demjour, Aeonflame and others)
I need an ID of the snake below. I appriciate help from everybody but I figured the members mentioned in the title was most likely to know.
The snake is about 4ft,
Below is what I am pretty sure to be a baby snake of the same species. Look very similar with the same big grey eyes. (however i might be wrong and it might be two different species.)
Do as I say. Not as I do.

It definitely looks arboreal.. maybe a central american tree boa?
Corralus Ruschenbergerii. We have this species here, but a different color morph.

I agree it def seem arboreal. I have been searching google for different arboreal snakes but I havent found it. It is not made easier by the fact that science knowns "nothing" about this country.
I have also consider if it might be a color morph of Tropidophiidae Ungaliophis, Mexican dwarf Boa
More than anything I am trying to figure our if it is venomous or not. So I can decide if I am going to keep it or go hiking to release it far from people.Do as I say. Not as I do.

I am leaning heavily towards Corallus annulatus after you got me seraching the Corallus Genus. What do you think?Do as I say. Not as I do.

Hmm.. the darker morph does seem to fit. Im pretty certain its not venomous either way.
If its anything like the Corallus cookii I used to keep, then its definitely very aggressive though.

So far the small one is aggressive, the large one very laid back.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Are you guys sure that's not a rat snake of some kind? Elaphe maybe?55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

That is definitely possible Rue. The head shape and location just shouted boine at me though.
Edit: I think Rue got it. Elaphe obsoleta perhaps?

It could be Elaphe/Pantherophis obsoletus lindheimeri but they eyes does not feel quite right.
It is very active for a boine (compared to my experince) and assumes S strike position when cornered. It is a lot more Bity than any bonie i worked with.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Did some more research. Elaphe/Pantherophis obsoletus is not found anywhere near this far south.Do as I say. Not as I do.
