About Bitis Nasicornis Snake:
Bitis nasicornis is a venomous viper species found in the forests of West and Central Africa.
This large viper is known for its striking coloration and prominent nasal “horns.” No subspecies are currently recognized.
Large and stout, it ranges in total length (body + tail) from 72 to 107 cm (about 28 to 42 inches).
Spawls et al. (2004) mentioned a maximum total length of 120 cm (47 in), but admitted this is exceptional, quoting an average total length of 60–90 cm (about 24–35 inches). Females grow larger than males.
The head is narrow, flat, triangular and relatively small compared to the rest of the body.
The neck is thin. It has a distinctive set of two or three horn-like scales on the end of the nose, the front pair of which may be quite long. The eyes are small and set well forward.
The fangs are not large: rarely more than 1.5 cm (0.59 in) long.
Midbody there are 31–43 dorsal scale rows. These are so rough and heavily keeled that they sometimes inflict cuts on handlers when the snakes struggle.
There are 117–140 ventral scales and the anal scale is single.
Mallow et al. (2003) reported the subcaudals number 16–32, with males having a higher count (25–30) than females (16–19).
Spawls et al. (2004) stated there are 12–32 subcaudals, paired, and males have the higher numbers of them.
It is found from Guinea to Ghana in West Africa, and in Central Africa in the Central African Republic, southern Sudan, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, DR Congo, Angola, Rwanda, Uganda and western Kenya.
The type locality is listed only as “interior parts of Africa.”
This snake occurs in forested areas, rarely venturing into woodlands. Its range is therefore more restricted than B. gabonica.
Primarily nocturnal, they hide during the day in leaf litter, in holes, around fallen trees or tangled roots of forest trees.
Their vivid coloration actually gives them excellent camouflage in the dappled light conditions of the forest floor, making them almost invisible.
Although mainly terrestrial, they are also known to climb into trees and thickets, where they have been found up to 3 m (9.8 ft) above the ground.
This climbing behavior is aided by a partially prehensile tail.
They are sometimes found in shallow pools and have been described as powerful swimmers.
