New species: "snail-sucking snake"

The authors of this article seem to have coined the term "snail-sucking snake" for this new species from Ecuador. Naturally, I couldn't resist quoting it. (I also can't help thinking, in Dave Barry mode, that "Snail-Sucking Snakes" would be a great name for a rock band.) It's one of a horde of new reptiles and amphibians from western Ecuador.
