Looking for Vipera seoanei

Last summer I spend some time in Spain to see some variation in Vipera seoanei.

Results in the link:

Incredibly beautiful vipers! Congratulations and many thanks for the inspiring an funny trip report. You obviously have some sort of magic eyesight. Spent a couple of days where the three viper species overlap two years ago and found nothing but one drab brown seoanei...

I have been in Spain two times (with that Belgian guy Bert ;) ) and we never had the luck of finding latastei... Guess we will have to follow your footsteps! Great report and what a beautiful light colored latastei hybrid you found :shock:

Sounds like a great vacation. Wonderful critters, excellent pics.

Never having seen seoanei (only ever spent 1 hour in 36 degree heat within habitat...) I've mostly thought of them as essentially just berus with a little extra nice pattern variation. You opened my eyes that I might be underestimating them and whet my appetite for a trip.

Oh, and that light coloured hybrid is astonishing. A shame that it wasn't in better condition.

Never seen so many vipers: not even if I count all the pictures I've seen in my life... (typical paradox! :lol:). Fully impressed and a little jealous! :shock:

Same here - what else should/could I (or anyone else in his right mind) say... Well, as for me, fully impressed,
and VERY MUCH jealous...
