Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Lachesis muta muta
South American Bushmaster

Depto Loreto, Peru
January 21, 2013

Coming back to camp late one night, this beast was coiled up on the trail, and photographed as found on the right.  The shot below is from the next day.  The snake was about 5.5 feet long, although it seemed much longer at night on a dark trail in the forest!
