Fer-de-Lance/common Brazilian lancehead/Jaracuçu

Most likely Bothrops moonjeni or possibly B. atrox

Description:

I think this is some sort of viper. I took this picture 8 years ago while on an amazon expedition in Brazil. Proper ID would be much appreciated. If you can actually see pass the amazing camouflage.

Excellent camouflage. Bothrops looks good. I would want a good telephoto for this beautiful snake.

Not positive about this one, so look into it for yourself and make sure you agree before you update the ID. Took me a good 2 minutes to even find the head, nice spot!
