The picture was taken within the Komodo national park But not on Komodo itself - on the island Rintja. There you also find a large community of the Komodo dragons (varan).

The snake we found on a wlking trip on the island. Green pit vipers are extremely poisonous and my heartbeat really went up getting close to take the shot. But I had to do it ... :)
