p.1 #1 · Rhinocerous viper snake


Hello, I haven't posted in ages, it seems. Went into the reptile house at the Houston Zoo today and shot through the glass. Here is a rhinocerous viper. Aptly named, I think.

Excellent through the glass work here Kenny! This snake surely can hide well in the environment shown!

What a good looking viper--these are among my favorite snakes, and their bodies are just massive in width.

Beautiful work---no replections or distortion make it appear that you were on your belly in the bush!!!

a rhinoceros viperís fangs fold up into its mouth, and they do not automatically appear when the mouth opens. This particular snake controls its fangs' movements and uses them deliberately. The fangs are for hunting, and rarely inflict their pain on humans. This is not an aggressive snake, but attacks are lightning fast when they occur. Although a slow mover on the ground, the rhinoceros viper strikes rapidly and can cover a distance of more than 1 foot (30 cm) when attacking.

During an attack, this snake emits a loud, bark-like hiss before plunging 1.5-inch (2.5 cm) fangs into its victim, dispensing small doses of venom. The rhinoceros viper injects mostly hemotoxic venom, which focuses on the circulatory system. Although not considered extremely deadly, a river jack bite may destroy blood vessels and body tissues and can cause internal bleeding and damage.
