Bush Viper Discovered
Hornlike scales above its eyes make Matilda's Horned Viper an interesting sight.
The brightly hued snake bears a resemblance to the Usambara bush viper. Slight difference separate the two species.
Striking black-and-yellow colors make the bush viper beautiful to watch.
To protect the species from illegal hunting, the exact location of the snake's habitat have been withheld. It is estimated to be only a few square miles of remote forest in southwest Tanzania.
