  • #XenopeltisUnicolor is a non-venomous #SunbeamSnake species found in Southeast Asia and some regions of Indonesia. This is a primitive snake known for both its highly iridescent scales and its ability to reproduce quickly, as it is oviparous and as such can lay up to 10 eggs at a time. No subspecies are currently recognized.
Grows to an average of about 1m (3ft 3in). A fossorial species, the head is wedge-shaped and narrow with little neck delineation, which makes it easy to push through the soil. Its most defining characteristic is its iridescent, highly polished scales that give this snake its common name. They have a layer of dark pigmentation just below the surface on each scale that enhances the iridescence. The youngs look very similar to the adults, except that they have a strong white "collar" of scales evident just below the head. This coloration fades within the first year.
This is a primitive form of #snake with both #boid and #python characteristics; which family it belongs to is still a matter of debate.
These snake are #constrictors, killing their prey by suffocation in their muscular coils. They are fossorial and spend most of their time below ground. They may bite readily if handled roughly, but mostly just try to escape if picked up. They are also observed to vibrate their tails in a rattlesnake-like fashion when they feel threatened.

  • In so many indigenous cultures around the world, snakes are regarded as sacred spirits and guardians to springs and water sources. Whether they carried wishes and requests for rain, or messages to the ancestors that lived within the belly of the earth, snakes are revered as a living bridge to the underworld. It never ceases to amaze me how the west has vilified snakes when they have been so deeply respected and even loved by so many cultures since the beginning of human time. Here in North America, as we fight for water rights, usually on indigenous land, snake medicine is more important than ever. She reminds us to honor the life giving nature of water, and fiercely protect it, as the serpent would. 📷 Pearl is pictured here with the bounty of rare lavender rose quartz from last year ✨
