Fer-de-lance is an appellation applied to several species of snakes. This is a lancehead viper or scientific name of bothrops asper. it was probably about 3 years old and about 3 feet long. When we first encountered it, it was slithering towards the stream that we were standing in, but stopped when we saw it and started shining our lights on it. Eventually it coiled up and stayed put, probably waiting for prey to come along some day. Vipers can wait several days for prey to come by.
