This closeup(macro) photo depicts the apical pits on the scales
of a normal type tricolored Honduran Milksnake.

These pits are thought to be remnants of fine hair-type follicles that originated millions of years ago, and were/are used to some capacity for the snake's sensory functions.

best regards, ~Doug
