Thank you Very much Karen and the Noah community for selecting this spotting as the SOTD ! Im greatly honored ! :) :) :) :) And a big thank you for the Wild life Lab at University of Peradeniya , Dr K.B. Ranawana and the Wild life lab crew for giving me the opportunity to participate in the youth camp held in Naula , Mathale ( that is the place where i had the chance to see this viper ! )
Congrats Saumya, your great capture has been chosen as Spotting of the Day! Although venomous, the green pit viper usually avoids confrontation and will try to escape. The majority of green pit viper bites cause only swelling and pain.Facebook: https://upload.facebook.com/projectnoah/...Twitter: https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/4...
