The ultimate pit viper. I know that not everyone shares my facination with snakes, but this one is particularly interesting for who he is, a deadly fer-de-lance (bothrops asper). He's coiling to strike while keeping a wary eye on me. The fer-de-lance has a nasty toxin and horrible attitude, landing it on lists of the world's most dangerous snakes. Costa Rica.
