|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|We were walking in the jungle of the Mayan ruins of Palenque, Chiapas when suddenly a Boa Constrictor apperead just in front of us.|
In that moment, we confused this snake with the "Nauyaca Saltadora (Atropoides nummifer)" which is a venomous species found in Mexico and Central America.
Boa constrictors have different sizes and colors depending on where they live in Mexico, in the south part you can find the bigger ones.
The picture was taken with the Nikon 18-55mm at that time I didn't have a zoom lens, so as you can see I was very close to the Boa when I took the picture.
