Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Micrurus surinamensis surinamensis
Aquatic Coral Snake

Depto Loreto, Peru
January 15, 2011

My first surinamensis was an emaciated adult, in very poor condition.  We took its picture and released it in a shallow creek, where I hope it managed to find some fish to eat.  On my return trip in 2013 we saw quite a few Aquatic Coral Snakes, at least one nearly every night.
