Neotropical Sunbeam Snake: Loxocemidae - Physical Characteristics, Diet, Behavior And Reproduction - GEOGRAPHIC RANGE, HABITAT, NEOTROPICAL SUNBEAM SNAKES AND PEOPLE, CONSERVATION STATUS

species accessed september world

This snake lives from southwestern Mexico through much of Central America, including Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and northwestern Costa Rica.

Neotropical sunbeam snakes live in warm climates and a variety of forested areas, but not in the mountains. They also sometimes make their home along the beaches of the coastline. They are secretive animals that hide among rocks and leaves, beneath logs and/or under their bark, in below-ground holes, and even in ant nests.

This is not a typical pet species, probably because of its tendency to spend much of its time underground. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) lists this species as one that people cannot freely buy and sell.

This species is not listed as endangered or threatened.
