Waglers Pit Viper – Borneo

In the afternoon we decide to return to Sepilok . Along the way as we hike through the torrential rain and spot a Waglers Pit Viper. YIKES!!! The snake was so well camouflaged that we were lucky to spot him. He was wrapped around a branch at eye level.

We learned later these are extremely venomous. Their venom is a strong hemotoxin that is fatal to humans. Even though he was close enough to touch, we gave it the respect he deserved.

As rain subsides we decide to take a hike to the Discovery Center. Interesting with many foot bridges above jungle. Gives a different perspective of the animals and plant life.
