Cope’s Parrot Snake – Leptophis depressirostris

The Cope’s Parrot Snake (also known as the Satiny Parrot Snake) is a long slender snake from the Central and South American rainforests. These snakes can reach over six feet long but their slender nature makes them seem much smaller. They are primarily lizard eaters but may also take frogs or birds. Parrot snakes are known for their defensive posture that includes coiling back and gaping their mouths.
