SNAKE!

Photographer: Dennis Stewart
Title: Waglers Viper

Description:
This is a MACRO shot I took recently of a cool viper of which I thought I would share on my blog.
Common names: Wagler’s pit viper
Tropidolaemus wagleri is a venomous pit-viper species native to southeast Asia. The epithet, wagler, is in honor of German herpetologist Johann Georg Wagler. No subspecies are currently recognized. It is sometimes referred to as the temple viper because of its abundance around the Temple of the Azure Cloud in Malaysia.
