Hi Chris79,

Your spotting has been voted Spotting of the Week! Rangers were captivated by this striking photo of an Eyelash Pit Viper. Congratulations on the weekly achievement and we look forward to seeing your future photos!

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
