hi, i'm from the phils. and have done some herping here... it really depends on the area where your friend have been... but maybe the "tres cantos" you've mentioned is Trimeresurus flavomaculatus(Phil. Pit Viper)
:I have posted this question on the "what's this snake?" forum on Kingsnake, but i thought i'd ask here as well. I have a friend who recently returned from the Phillipines to tell a tale of a snake called the "three cornered snake" or "tres cantos". The snake has a triangualr cross section and can grow to perhaps 7 feet. no description available (sorry) except for the sharp "corners" and a legend that the sharp dorsal ridge is venemous. I understand this not to be true, and i understand that mangrove snakes of the region exhibit this shape, as well as possibly a far from home krait. anyone ever heard of a snake mentioned by this name, or have any ideas besides mangrove or krait?
