This week let’s take a brief foray into the world of what is probably the best known and most variable member of the genus, the 2 to 3-foot long Eyelashed Palm Pit Viper, <em>Bothriechis schlegelii</em>. This is a slender snake with a strongly prehensile tail. The supraorbital “eyelashes” are legend. Despite being venomous, the variability of color and patterns and the fact that this snake is hardy attracts many hobbyists to this lowland Central American and northern South American pit viper.<br /> <br /> Color? You name it. This snake can vary from the dullest of grays, with or without darker patterning, to the brightest of sunshine yellow, again with or without patterning. The gold-phase is often referred to as the “Orapel,” Spanish meaning gold and glittery. Then there are the greens, gray-greens, dull greens, or a hobbyist favorite, the “Christmas tree phase, this latter being a bright green with reddish patterning. The tiger phase, a golden snake with broad green banding is also a favorite.<br /> <br /> This is a humidity loving snake that in its forested habitat may often be found at about face-level along bush and tree-shrouded watercourses. There it quietly waits for prey that includes small arboreal rodents, treefrogs, lizards and birds.<br /> <br /> Along with the already mentioned attributes, hobbyists are now taking pride in designing enclosures for this quiet snake as rainforest replicas with living plants, perches, and occasionally with mini-waterfalls. Humidity is good, wetness is not.<br /> I’ll close here by saying that although this is often a “laid back” and quiet species, as with any venomous snake, extreme care should be used when maintenance and or handling becomes necessary. <a class="block_level" href="http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5353-The-Eyelashed-Palm-Pit-Viper.html#extended">Continue reading "The Eyelashed Palm Pit Viper"</a> Mon, 16 Aug 2021 00:26:00 -0500 http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5353-guid.html Herp Photo of the Day: Happy Rattlesnake Friday! http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5359-Herp-Photo-of-the-Day-Happy-Rattlesnake-Friday!.html Herp Photo of the Day http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5359-Herp-Photo-of-the-Day-Happy-Rattlesnake-Friday!.html#comments http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/wfwcomment.php?cid=5359 0 http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=5359 (kingsnake.com) The photo may be a bit blurry, but there is no mistaking that is a gravid Masssasauga in our Herp Photo of the day, uploaded by kingsnake.com user <a href="http://gallery.kingsnake.com/user/LetsConservate24"> LetsConservate24 </a>in the field!

Like is congenerics, it is small (to about 30 inches) and slender in build. The tail is strongly prehensile. As with most snakes, both the common and the scientific name may be misleading. Although most examples are leaf-green with prominent black edging around the yellowish dorsal blotches and black facial markings, and some have black-edged green blotches that are nearly the same as the body in color. Others may be uniform green, lacking both dorsal and facial black patterning. Black, variably distinct, irregular vertebral striping may connect the dorsal blotches. If present this marking is often most discernable anteriorly. The belly of adults is usually marginally lighter than the dorsum and neonates are a pale green with the expected dark markings. Captives readily accept mice and it is expected that in the wild the diet may include small rodents, mouse opossums, and, for neonate vipers treefrogs and lizards.<br /> <br /> The Yellow-blotched Palm Pit Viper, <em>Bothriechis aurifer</em>, considered by biologists to be a “vulnerable species,” is not frequently imported and is currently uncommon in both zoo and private collections.<br /> <br /> Seemingly little is known, or at least has been published about the venom of this pit viper. I’ll close here by saying that as with any venomous snake, extreme care should be used when handling. <a class="block_level" href="http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5352-The-Yellow-blotched-Palm-Pit-Viper.html#extended">Continue reading "The Yellow-blotched Palm Pit Viper"</a> Mon, 09 Aug 2021 11:49:00 -0500 http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5352-guid.html Herp Photo of the Day: Python http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5351-Herp-Photo-of-the-Day-Python.html Herp Photo of the Day http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/archives/5351-Herp-Photo-of-the-Day-Python.html#comments http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/wfwcomment.php?cid=5351 0 http://www.sgbmsite.com/blog/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=5351 (kingsnake.com) This isn't our forefathers Af Rock!
