Yellow-blotched Palm Pit Viper (Bothriechis aurifer) On our first night in the cloud forest we found two of these beautiful snakes. Seth spotted this stunner about 15 minutes after I found the little juvenile that I already posted. With @intothemojave @andresnovales_wildlife in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala 2018 at @ranchitosdelquetzal

@dracorjc we didn’t run into any safety issues at all, I felt safe the whole time. Of course if not careful, you could run into trouble.
