You probably wouldn't want to run across the venomous Gumprecht's green pit viper, like the adult male seen here--the species can grow up to 4.3 feet (1.3 meters) long.

Originally discovered in Thailand in 2002, the reptile also slithers through the mountains of Myanmar (Burma). The country is part of the biologically rich Eastern Himalaya region, which has yielded more than 300 new species since 1998, according to an August 2009 WWF report.
