Only By An Inch

Photographic documentation of the Shore Pit Viper (Cryptelytrops purpureomaculatus), day and night, over a course of two months. During this two months, the viper moves only by an inch each time I visit.

Snakes in the viper family (Viperidae) are particularly my favourite. Vipers to me are like dragons, ferocious and brave, that comes alive from fairytale books. They are mysterious with a pair of compelling eyes, a body that glitter under the scorching sun and midnight moon, empowering with an elegant and confident posture.
