19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Legged snake

During a herping expedition in Río Nuevo Private Reserve, Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica, we had the privilege to see the complete attack of a cat eyed snake on a tree frog. After some struggle more than half of the frog was inside the snake creating this weird looking moment of a"legged snake" like creature.
