Thanks S Frazier, I will post in a separate spotting.

Two separate individuals of the same species photographed at different locations or at different times (usually) should be made into two spottings. Thanks

Minas Gerais is almost paradise for snake lovers. I saw a lot of Jararacas and Cascaveis (rattlesnakes) when I went to Uberlandia.

Fantastic! I would suggest making two spottings. Doesn't matter that it's the same species. This way location (coordinates) and other data an be specific for each.
