Habitat: Madagascar
Status: Data Deficient

In March 2010, this previously unidentified species was tracked down and given a name: Liophidium pattoni. There have only been a couple of photographs ever taken of this snake as it is extremely rare to happen upon. 

This snake is non-aggressive and we’re thinking – and hoping – that it’s not poisonous venomous. It is one of Madagascar’s most colorful and alluring reptile species so if you’re ever in the area make sure to keep your eyes peeled for a treat!
