The Viper Queen in the Crocodile Zoo in Protivín

In these days, valuable Bitis parviocula of Ethiopia have been exhibited. Our ZOO is the first and the only one in Europe doing so. Bitis species is famous for its mightiness and lovely colours, as well as for its very long teeth and mortally dangerous poison. Next, you can see Bitis arientas, a smaller and colourful form coming from the Lake Nakuru in Kenya, and huge Bitis nasicornis from Uganda.
