Blunt-headed tree snake

Taken in La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica, during a night walk at the Arenal Oasis Eco Lodge & Wildlife Refuge. It is quite is a slender snake that feeds on geckos, anolis lizards, frogs, reptile eggs, and frog eggs. Without the excellent guide we would never have found it. I was about 1 m above ground among some leaves.
