Yard Work and Hidden Treasures

21 Jul

One thing most people think about when living in the rainforest are the inhabitants that live here too!  With three dogs who run and play all the time we always fear that one day they will run into something they shouldn’t.

So while raking a few leaves today I discovered this little guy hiding under some leaves right next to the path to the shower outside.  I was able to flip it into a 5 gallon plastic pale and called the Rescue center to see if they could help relocate this snake safely.  To their surprise and ours it turns out to be a male hog-nosed pit viper.  They currently have a female at the center but no male.  So this little guy will now live and love under the guidance of the center.

Good to have it gone, just have to wait for the next one to show up.
