Herpetological Review Volume 53, Number 2 (June 2022), is now available! Our cover features a stunning Blue Malaysian Coral Snake (Calliophis bivirgatus) that was photographed by Scott Trageser in Singapore. This colorful, slender elapid has a red head, tail, and underside and dark blue-to-black dorsum with two lighter blue stripes running down the body and inhabits lowland and low montane areas across southeast Asia. Calliophis bivirgatus is one of only a few species recognized to have elongated venom glands that extend up to 25% of the body length.
