Yellow and deadly

Not an Eyelash viper, but an Osborne Lancehead (Bothrops osbornei.), - yellow and bright like a toy in the green darkness of the cloud forest of Maspi, Ecuador. It is a pit wiper close related to the feared Fer-de-Lance, and the holes to the infrared organ are clearly visible located on either side of the head between the eye and nostril. (Osbornes lansorm)
