A man named Andrés Obando discovered a snakes very beautiful in the PILA valley of the Nature Reserve in Spain. This creature has a strange green and black scale but is difficult to detect when they are camouflaged on the ground or in trees.
What kind of snake is this?
The snake that appears in the images above is a viper named Speckled palm (Science teen: Bothriechis nigroviridis). This is a very rare species of snake and there is very little research on it, including how dangerous its venom is.
Adult snakes will be about 60 cm long. Some can grow up to 80 cm but more rarely, their bodies are quite slender with a prehensile tail (the tail of animals that have adapted to grasp or hold objects).
Snakes have an enchanting but dangerous appearance
Their scales are emerald green and a little yellow, black, black tongue, triangular head characteristic of vipers. This snake is commonly found in the high cloudy mountains of Costa Rica and Panama at altitudes of 1,150 m to over 3,000 m.
So far, no deaths have been recorded because this snake is very rare, even with local people, they rarely appear. However, some reports suggest that the bite can cause pain, nausea and difficulty breathing (according to The Venomous Reptiles of the Western Hemisphere).
