Speckled forest pitviper

This adult Speckled forest pitviper (Bothriopsis taeniata) was one of my top finds from several moths of fieldwork in Ecuador in 2014. This image shows the snake in situ as it was found during the day. #Speckledforestpitviper #bothriopsis #bothriopsistaeniata #bothrops #pitviper #viper #snake #arboreal #amazonbasin #amazon #rainforest #Ecuador #herping #snake #camoflage #hiddeninplainsight #Nature #wildlife
