::iwas watching a show on tv about some herpatologist looking for new species in the south pacific. they found a small redish brown snake in a tree,it wasn't a new discovery, but they said it was a mock viper.it had a triangular shaped head and enlarged front teeth that were hinged and sprung forth just like vipers. this species has no venom though. does anyone know of this species?
:no. it was on a south pacific island. false terciopelos are new world snakes that have fixed rear fangs and weak venom. :
