I bought this as V. ammodytes but after looking after localization (Marbella) it seems to be V. latasti. I'm no good with vipers, I have been trying to look for differences but because I don't have a certain V. latasti with which I could compare this one so I decided that I just don't know.

Could anyone help me how I make sure which species this is? He's born 06/06 and he's in the cellar at the moment (for the next 4 months). Pictures are no good, I can try to take better ones but I don't want to disturb him very much.

Here is few links:




So it's male, 1,5 years old and withering as devil.

edit: JStroud, linked the photos directly for you Cool

Look like V. latestei to me Wink

Your best bet would be Mique, he should see this, as I believe he has experience with both species Cool

It looks V. latastei to me too.
I don't care if it's ammodytes or latastei (gadinata), I like it anyway Very Happy

I am sure that it is a V. latastei! The shape and size of the horn tells me that. Nice specimen..

I also thing that it is a male V. l. gaditana, but Im nor sure of the subspecies..

Ok, only for few months then in the cellar.
Of course when I thought that it's from somewhere more northern than Marbella... Rolling Eyes Have to took it warm again in mid January.

Thank you again.
