My fiance and I will be heading to either Bosque or Lapas for our honeymoon (decisions, decisions!!). I was curious---have any past vistors to either of these establishments had encountered a fer-de-lance pit viper?
My future wife and i are very much used to being in nature, as we are avid hikers. We both are aware of where snakes like to hang out and how to avoid any unwanted interactions, but in my experience I have not been in an area that housed a snake that is so aggresive (as compared to the copperheads and timber rattlers of our area which are not so 'strike happy').
Do they bask on the trails? Is this something that you must watch for while hiking? Does anybody have a "I came this close to stepping on one" story?
We would be very interested in hearing your input. Thanks!!
