Speckled forest pitviper

A wider shot of the Speckled forest pitviper I posted a couple of days ago. This shot reveals more of the snake's immediate habitat and the precarious perch it has chosesn to spend it's day resting on. Previous caption below: 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
