Brief Summary

Read full entry

Corallus annulatus is a neotropical arboreal boid snake. The species ranges through Central America, with limited distribution in northern South America. It grows up to six feet in length and possesses aesthetically pleasing annulations of a darker color than its body, with centers of the same color, along its sides and back. It is generally regarded as a docile species and spends nearly all its time in trees near riparian zones in lowland tropical forest. Corallus annulatus has been rarely observed in the wild since its initial description by Cope (1876), and is thus believed to be relatively uncommon. It feeds nocturnally on a wide variety of arboreal vertebrates, although larger individuals may perch lower to hunt terrestrial prey.
