Africa is the world's second largest and second most-populous continent (behind Asia in both categories).
Charles Mitchill Bogert (June 4, 1908 – April 10, 1992) was an American herpetologist, and curator of herpetology and researcher for the American Museum of Natural History.
In snakes, the dorsal scales are the longitudinal series of plates that encircle the body, but do not include the ventral scales.
Endemism is the ecological state of a species being unique to a defined geographic location, such as an island, nation, country or other defined zone, or habitat type; organisms that are indigenous to a place are not endemic to it if they are also found elsewhere.
A forest is a large area dominated by trees.
In ecology, a habitat is the type of natural environment in which a particular species of organism lives.
A hill is a landform that extends above the surrounding terrain.
Jonathan Atwood Campbell (born 13 May 1947) is an American herpetologist.
This is a list of all genera, species and subspecies of the subfamily Viperinae, otherwise referred to as viperines, true vipers, pitless vipers or Old World vipers.
Malawi (or; or maláwi), officially the Republic of Malawi, is a landlocked country in southeast Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland.
A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak.
The Nyika Plateau lies in northern Malawi, with a small portion in north eastern Zambia.
A savanna or savannah is a mixed woodland grassland ecosystem characterised by the trees being sufficiently widely spaced so that the canopy does not close.
A shrub or bush is a small to medium-sized woody plant.
A snakebite is an injury caused by the bite of a snake, especially a venomous snake.
A stream is a body of water with surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel.
In snakes, the subcaudal scales are the enlarged plates on the underside of the tail.
In biological classification, the term subspecies refers to a unity of populations of a species living in a subdivision of the species’s global range and varies from other populations of the same species by morphological characteristics.
Tanzania, officially the United Republic of Tanzania (Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania), is a sovereign state in eastern Africa within the African Great Lakes region.
In biology, a type is a particular specimen (or in some cases a group of specimens) of an organism to which the scientific name of that organism is formally attached.
Venomous snakes are species of the suborder Serpentes that are capable of producing venom, which is used primarily for immobilizing prey and defense mostly via mechanical injection by fangs.
In snakes, the ventral scales or gastrosteges are the enlarged and transversely elongated scales that extend down the underside of the body from the neck to the anal scale.
The Viperinae, or viperines, are a subfamily of venomous vipers endemic to Europe, Asia and Africa.
Woodland, is a low-density forest forming open habitats with plenty of sunlight and limited shade.
Zambia, officially the Republic of Zambia, is a landlocked country in south-central Africa, (although some sources prefer to consider it part of the region of east Africa) neighbouring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west.
