These are a medium to large viper from Africa. They come from a genus that is known to be rather short and fat in build. There are no other snakes in the world that look like the rhino viper.
Native to west and central African forests.
These are gorgeous snakes that have a very bold and vibrant pattern and color. This specimen was shot at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC. Those shots are also thru glass and came out much better than I had planned.
