It was a bit feisty when I tried to take close-up pictures of it, striking at me several times, that I have to leave it without close-up shots. Bornean Keeled Pit Viper,Geotagged,Malaysia,Sarawak,Snake,Summer,Tropidolaemus subannulatus,Viper Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

  1. I think this is close enough, Albert! Incredible capture. Posted 3 years ago
    1. I have taken much closer-up shots of them before, just the face, full fram, no crops :D Posted 3 years ago
  2. By the way, why does this one have yellow/red stripes whilst the other photos of the same species do not? Is this a gender or maturity variation? Posted 3 years ago
    1. The stripes and colours is the variation in the juveniles. Posted 3 years ago
