  1. Interesting eyes John Posted 8 months ago
    1. They are proportionally large because it's such a young snake (which helps make it extra cute). Posted 8 months ago

Phyllorhynchus decurtatus, the Spotted Leaf-nosed Snake, is a small pale snake with dark blotches, smooth scales and a blunt snout. The rostral scale over the nose is enlarged and raised above the level of the other scales, giving this snake its name, as the scale looks like part of a leaf folded over the nose.
