First Adder 2013

Whilst scouting for fresh beaver sign with a friend we stumbled across this little guy just laying out in the open. It was a cold evening and there was still ice on the lake with snow in places so he wasn't very active and just lay there hissing so I took the opportunity to get a couple of pics on my iPhone.

    1. Hi Jack

      It's a European Adder or European Viper as some refer to it and it's the only poisonous snake we have here in Norway. There are lots of them in our hunting terrain so we have to be very careful when hunting with the dogs so we always carry medication in case one is bitten.

      Here's a bit more info about the snake:

      Thanks for reading.
