Common Lancehead

Bothrops Atrox is one of the most venomous snakes in the Americas. Despite their danger, these beautiful snakes have provided humanity with a lot of benefits through the use of their venom in producing medications. Like all snakes, they are best enjoyed from a distance as this species does tend to be a bit feisty.
