Stunning pit vipers indeed.

Any idea of the lizard species? I'm thinking Calotes maybe?

Must have been a great holiday!

Best regards,

Tim

It was very dangerous to make this picture. The danger was not the snake but an angry crowd that was trowing stones.

Wow! Absolutely stunning you found a King! Heard stories of people searching for kings in the jungle etc but all without luck! You should consider yourself very lucky!
