Blunthead Tree Snake

Is this not the cutest little snake you've ever seen?

Or some weird alien thing with cat's eyes. Cutest little alien thing, though!

Its head is too big for its body.

And its eyes are too big for its head. This = cute.

Imantodes cenchoa is a nocturnal, tree-dwelling snake from Central and South America. It eats lizards, frogs and the eggs of reptiles and frogs.

They reach some 80 cm (31 in) long but are so slim they remain light enough to slither along branches and leaves.

I think it should be called the Anime Snake. If you know of a living thing that better blends the sweet and the sinister (aside from sleeping babies who are just about to cry at 3 in the morning, or toddlers who appear possessed by malevolent forces from beyond our mortal realm whenever they have temper tantrums), I'd like to hear it! I don't think such a thing is possible.
