BRAZIL - Snake Island is the only place on Earth where the critically endangered golden lancehead pit viper can be found, with numbers reaching into the thousands.
Snake Island is a small island off the coast of Brazil, home to thousands of highly venomous snakes. These snakes, measuring up to 1.2 meters, belong to the golden lancehead pit viper species (Bothrops insularis). They are so venomous that the Brazilian Navy has prohibited public access to the island since the 1920s. The island is located about 34 kilometers off the southeastern coast of Brazil and spans an area of 43 hectares, roughly equivalent to 80 American football fields. The island is covered by rainforests for more than half of its area, while the rest is barren land and rocky outcrops.
