A Cayman Islands resident captured this Cayman Racer snake in the South Sound area, devouring a Green Iguana.
Cayman Racer snakes are endemic to the Cayman Islands and aren’t found anywhere else in the world. Adults have been known to reach the 4-5ft length.
In fact, no Cayman snakes pose any threat to people, cats or dogs however these non-venomous snakes should be avoided by the average Green Iguana!
