Snakes everywhere

The rainy season has started and the snakes are getting pretty active at the moment. In the last two months we have sighted about fivteen venomous snakes, mostly Osborne`s Lancehead (Bothrops osborneii), but also Fer-de-Lance (Bothrops asper & punctatus) and Toad-headed Pitvipers (Bothrocophias campbelli).
