Snake Island: The isle writhing with vipers where only Brazilian military & scientists are allowed


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Snake Island was isolated from the Brazilian mainland at the end of the last ice age, trapping Earth's only known population of highly venomous golden lancehead pit vipers on a rock in the Atlantic.

Researchers estimate that between 2,000 and 4,000 golden lanceheads live on Snake Island. The species has not been found anywhere else in the world and is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List

Critically endangered? They have their own Island!  Hey I have an idea...let's repopulate them back into the everglades...maybe cut down on the iguana population. Also introduce them back into the amazon basin ...just to keep the aborigines on their toes...
