Machete Savane visiting our lodge in the Amazon Like all whipsnakes this one was very fast moving and hard to get a good picture - but of a large number of black and yellow blurs, this one was OK. It was in the grass outside of our lodge right after breakfast one morning.

''Chironius carinatus'', commonly known as the machete savane or amazon whipsnake, is a very large, but slender colubrid snake. It is a nonvenomous snake, also distinguished by its pacifistic nature.
