30-09-2013 - Black-headed Bushmaster
The Black-headed Bushmaster (Lachesis melanocephala) is one of the world's most elusive vipers and only occurs in a small part of Costa Rica. It depends on continuous forest and is likely declining. However, due to its secretive nature, no status assessments exist. The objective of our project is to test methods for locating bushmasters that can be used to help initiate conservation actions.
