SpeciesPopeia sabahi
LocalitySabah, Malaysia
DescriptionStill wet from a passing rainstorm, a Sabah Pit Viper lies in ambush on the side of a tree, waiting for the approach of suitable prey. By maintaining a low metabolism and sometimes remaining in a single position for weeks at a time, tropical vipers such as this can survive by feeding as infrequently as once every few months.
