oh yeah
scary indeed....

closely followed by the Bushmaster

I remember when we were in Peru we wore wellingtons and carried a snake bite extractor kit at all times... walking thru the forest in the day was scary but at night i was genuinely quite scared as we were well out of range of medical attention

looking forward to the pix Martin...
