    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.

    I am leaning heavily towards Corallus annulatus after you got me seraching the Corallus Genus. What do you think?

    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.

    Are you guys sure that's not a rat snake of some kind? Elaphe maybe?

    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.
