Hi all,
My Spanish class has been following mayaquest, and something interesting came up. They are giving a snake away to the classroom that comes up with the best name. I'm not interested in getting the snake, but I would like to know what kind it is, so here is a description
Color: blue and black, with pink forked tongue
Length: approx. 4 feet, and growing all the time?
Girth: about 5 inches
Hometown: Peten Rainforest, Guatemala

I have personnaly never heard of or seen a snake quite like this. I have attached (hopefullly) a picture of it. I know the pic is lousy, but it's the only one they had. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the pic doesn't load, you can go to .

to see it.
Now I know you probably won't believe me about it's color, but I swear to you that it looks to be bright blue in the small picture of it. My school is considering trying to get this snake, but I would like to know the species before we try to get it.

Thank you,
Jonathan Todd

P.S.
Out of all the reptile books I've looked through lately, I haven't managed to find out what species it is
