It is also immune to the venom produced by centipedes, which is undoubtably injected into the snake during the centipede's capture and subsequent ingestion by the snake. It is harmless to humans and can be handled safely by people.

      The African snakes of the genus Crotaphopeltis that have been placed in the genus Leptodeira represent a separate evolutionary line of colubrine snakes. Based on the Cenozoic history of tropical America, studies of the morphology and distribution of the snakes, and the fossil record of other animals, the evolutionary history of Leptodeira has.   The indigo snake, a member of the colubrid family of snakes, is the (unofficially) longest snake in North America, with the longest recorded specimen measuring feet (m), but it is not the longest of its genus.

It is the most varied of all the snake groups. Many colubrids live on the ground or hunt in trees. Others burrow in soil or swim in swamps and ponds. Most species live in the tropics, but they are also found in colder climates, where they become inactive during winter. A new colubrid species of the genus Tantilla from the dry forest of the northern Peruvian Andes is described on the basis of two specimens, which exhibit a conspicuous sexual dimorphism.

In Mexico, it is found from central Coahuila south to San Luis Potosi, with isolated populations. With most colubrid snakes, the head is covered by large, plate-like scales; With these similarities aside, members of the Colubridae family of snakes are incredibly diverse.

A colubrid (from Latin coluber, snake) is a snake that is a member of the Colubridae "family".Colubridae is the largest snake family, and includes about two-thirds of all known living snake r, The Colubrids are certainly not a natural group, and many are more closely related to other groups, such as elapids, than to each family has classically been a dumping ground for.
