Venomous snakes in Africa, video


This 17 May 2020 video says about itself:

Venomous bush vipers are small snakes from Africa from genus the Atheris. In this video, you will see 3 species of bush vipers in the wild – Green bush viper (Atheris squamigera), Hairy bush viper or Rough-scaled bush viper (Atheris hispida) and Great lakes bush viper (Atheris nitschei).

All these venomous snakes are beautiful and endangered from habitat destruction and collecting for the pet trade. Watch this video to see them in the natural habitat and learn about the importance of protecting them.

There is also footage of Gaboon viper, Rhinoceros viper, Jameson’s mamba and Large-eyed green tree snake, Johnston’s chameleon and Strange-horned chameleon.
