The Hairy Bush Viper – Yes that is really its name.

Upon a little tangent on the internet today, I discovered pretty much the coolest snake and also the wierdest viperkeeper on the planet.  The snake is called Atheris hispida, and it lives in Central Africa.  Since I am not a zoologist, scientist or snake expert, I will save you the time of reading a long post that is probably full of falsities anyway.

Just watch the ViperKeepers video below, he is a truly awesome snake loving nerd.  A warning though, you may end up wasting a bunch of time watching him screw with seriously poisonous snakes.
