I was in Peru for two weeks in August collecting insects for my research. Along the way I was able to photograph some cool herps (and a couple mammals I threw in there as well).

WOW! Those are some awesome pictures! What kind of snake was the green one? Looks fairly dangerous to me. You must of had a great trip. Thanks for sharing those photos.

This guy! :) It sounds like that guy was prepared poorly though so I'll have to try it from a different restaurant when I go back in a few months.

The green one is a vine snake. Rear fanged colubrid. The venom isn't thought to be too bad. While there a guy was bit and except a bit of numbness around the bite, he was fine.
