RE: [CostaRicaLiving] Re: Snakes...again
>Plate 67 shows an excellent photograph of the "False Coral Snake"(Eythrolamprus mimus), with an IDENTICAL band sequence to the above.
The only noticable difference is that the scales in the center of the
black bands are somewhat faded. While this snake can cause painful
bites, they are not lethal.<
The noticeable difference to me is that on the false coral snake the bands
are not equally circular the full width of the snake. By that I mean black
meets red or red/yellow instead of black meeting black.

Of course, if I ever saw either one of these, I wouldn't be around long enough to see the difference.

I am planning to become a Pensionado later this year and have joined CRL for that purpose.
I have noticed several exchanges concerning snakes in CR which interest me as I have been a hobbyist and amateur herpatologist since I was a teenager. I would like to know if there are any such clubs or organizations in CR. I would also like to get correspondence from anyone in CR who also has such interests.

Hi again Bob,
There are several serpentaria in CR. There's one in
San José and another west of SJ -on the way to Grecia,
I think. You will be able to get directions to them
easily after you are in CR.
There are also at least a few people on this list
who seem to have an interest in snakes -or at
least in the fauna of CR. Perhaps they will respond
here to you.
Also, take a look in the 'photos' link on the left-hand
sidebar on the main page for the group online. Once
there check out Berni's Bugs where he has posted
a lot of nature pix, including, I think, a couple of snakes.
There are IIRC one or two other snake photos among
the other albums there.
Hope this helps...

- Hi Paul,
We are connecting with each other. Thanks for the information on snakes. I am actually interested in all types of tropical fauna in addition to snakes. Thanks for your help.
I have emailed the Vida Tropical about my reservations using you as a having recommended it to me. I hope that's OK with you. If not available, can you recommend any other low priced B&B I can use as a central post while I scout out the various towns as I have previously explained.
