Snake With Horns !


                            Have you heard about a snake with horns? Then such a new snake species - probably the second one - has been discovered in a remote place in Tanzania, Eastern Africa.

                           Its horns are just above the eyes. The snake is about 2.1 feet long, and its body is black and yellow in colour. It is named after the daughter of Tim Davenport, as Atheris matildae or Matilda’s horned viper, reported by Discovery News. Tim Davenport is the Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society of Tanzania. And he is one among the researchers who discovered the snake.
