    The Bush Viper The Bush Viper lives in the trees of the tropical forests in Africa, and it does most of its hunting at night. As if snakes weren't already scary enough, this one looks as though it's covered in hundreds of spiky leaves! The slightly better news though is that they are a smaller species of snake, with the maximum length being 78cm!

Eyelash Viper by tylerkaraszewski on Flickr. "It's amazing how hard it is to find a bright yellow snake. They're supposed to be poisonous, but they're real mellow, so you don't need to worry about getting bitten unless you start poking the snake or picking it up."

Octopus reproduction is fairly uniform across species. When a female is ready to mate, she releases a chemical into the water that attracts males. They will often fight one another for the right to mate. Then she lays the eggs (thousands of them) and fertilizes them using the spermatophore. She settles down and spends the next months caring for them. The eggs will then hatch and swim to the surface, the mother crawls out of her den and dies.
