~~~ Leptophis mexicanus ~~~
Mexican Parrot Snake
The parrot snake seldom bites but will always gap it mouth and put on a big show. But in the case of this bite it had no choise. Two of our guys could not get enough photos of this snake with its mouth wide open. After maybe 300 shots the snake had his revenge and nailed him. Symptoms were up set stomach and diarrhea, it lasted a few days.
