Saphenophis boursieri (Colubridae) is a diurnal and terrestrial snake specialist of soil and leaf litter in deep, chilly evergreen lower-montane forests, cloud forests and silvopastures. It occurs near streams, but is not restricted to them.
This colubrid is docile and completely harmless to humans. It is also very secretive. Only occasionally it is seen exposed basking in filtered sunlight.
Distribution. 1276–2549 m. Pacific slopes of the Andes in Ecuador and Colombia. Saphenophis boursieri is believed to be an extremely rare snake of low population densities.
