… and about that snake – after digging for a while Susan and I think it’s a Bothrops atrox or, as it’s commonly called, Fer de Lance. Needless to say, if our ID is right, we just came within a couple inches of having 2018 start really, really badly!
Too bad it’s so dark in there in the jungle – even at high ISO I was only able to get this one OK shot. The rest are all really blurry.

We are lucky. Glad Jim had a long lens so he could get a photo AND keep his distance!

Stay away from Vipers. They’re ill suited pets.

The pit viper head is a chilling sight.
Was it moving or still? Looking for birds made the miss even more lucky! Glad you both are okay

    I think you have the Bothrops Asper (terciopelo), and here it is the Bothrops Atrox (common lancehead). Both pretty scary. We were certainly thinking of Susan yesterday!
