New viper snake species found

RATE THIS! +1
Posted in Science on 10th Jan, 2012 10:21 PM by APM

A new species of brightly coloured snake has been found in a remote area of Tanzania in East Africa.

The striking black-and-yellow snake measures 60 cm (2.1 ft) and has horn-like scales above its eyes.

 

The newly discovered snake, named Matilda's horned viper, has been described in the journal Zootaxa.

 

The exact location of the new species is being kept a secret, because it could be of interest to the illegal pet trade.

 

Campaign group the Wildlife Conservation Society said the snake's habitat, estimated at only a several square km, is already severely degraded from logging and charcoal manufacture.

 

The authors of the study in Zootaxa expect the viper will be classified as a critically endangered species.

 

They have already established a small captive breeding colony.
