In a rainforest locality in Panama, the occurrence rates of B. asper have decreased to cero in the period from 1997 to 2012, probably as a result of the collapse of amphibian populations.65 Still, given the Terciopelo’s formidable capacity to adapt to new environments, it is unlikely that it will become extinct, at least not in the near term future.2. across the British Isles.

They can “bite and hold” their prey or “bite and release,” subsequently following the scent trail of the envenomated prey.12 As juveniles, they attract prey by means of moving their brightly colored tail as a lure.20 Terciopelos are opportunistic predators; they feed on almost any animal that is 3–75% of their body mass.2,21 Their diet includes primarily (69%) mammals (mostly rodents, but also rabbits, skunks, opossums, and even porcupines), but also amphibians (mostly frogs such as Leptodactylus labrosus, L. rhodomerus, Lithobates vaillanti, Pristimantis achatinus, Rhinella horribilis, and Smilisca phaeota, but also caecilians)9,22, lizards (whiptails, anoles, the microteiid Ptychoglossus gorgonae,1 and the worm lizard Amphisbaena alba),23 snakes (including Dipsas andiana,9 and members of their same species), birds, invertebrates (mainly centipedes,24,25 but also beetles, flies, hemipterans, ants, grasshoppers, and crayfish), fish,23 and carrion.2,25–28 When consumed, some toxic frogs cause the vipers to be sluggish and incapable of moving for nearly an hour.29 The diet of the Fer-de-Lance seems to shift from being based primarily on ectothermic (“cold-blooded”) prey as juveniles to based mostly on endothermic (“warm-blooded”) animals as adults.30,31 Individuals obtain water from their prey, from dew-laden surfaces, and bodies of water.2, Terciopelos rely on their camouflage as a primary defense mechanism.2 When threatened, some snakes flee, others give a “warning” by wiggling their tail against the leaf litter, and some just readily attack.2,5 Predators of Bothrops asper include snakes (such as Clelia clelia, C. equatoriana, and Drymarchon melanurus),2,9 mammals (such as peccaries, skunks, coatis, and raccoons),1,2 falcons, hawks, chickens, crabs, and spiders (particularly tarantulas).2,9 There are records of adult Terciopelos being attacked and severely injured by monkeys.32 The Fer-de-Lance is parasitized by ticks, parasitic worms, and protozoans.2,33,34, The Fer-de-Lance is a venomous species (LD50The median lethal dose (LD50) is a measure of venom strength. scientific literature through a combination of long-form articles, regular columns and reports, Some of the best localities to find Central American Lanceheads in the wild in Ecuador are: Bilsa Biological Reserve, Buenaventura Biological Reserve, Canandé Reserve, and Jama-Coaque Ecological Reserve. It does, however, usually have a variety of parasitic worms.2,33, They don’t.1 In fact, in the case of the Terciopelo, there is evidence that the snakes actively avoid developed areas.12 They do, however, follow their prey, mostly rodents.12 Therefore, vipers such as the Fer-de-Lance are common where rat populations have exploded.5, With a lethal dose of LD50 1.9–11.2 mg/kg, the venom of the Fer-de-Lance is considered “extremely toxic.”35,36 In poorly managed or untreated human envenomations, the venom may cause permanent complications and disabilities in 6% of cases, and death in 5–7% of cases.47–49.

Males of Bothrops asper become sexually mature when they reach ~99.5 cm in total length; females at ~111.3 cm, or in little over 3 years,62 although females may attain a length of >2 m and a weight of 6 kg in just 2.5 years.63 The breeding season of some Fer-de-Lance populations coincides with the rainy season.2 Females are capable of delaying fertilization by storing sperm for years.2 After a gestation period of 6–8 months, females “give birth” (the eggs hatch within the mother) to 2–102 young1,49 that are 21.5–37.1 cm in total length.50,62 Females usually produce only one litter per year if environmental conditions are favorable.62 In captivity, individuals can live up to 21 years.2, Conservation: Least Concern Believed to be safe from extinction given current circumstances..64 Bothrops asper is listed in this category because the species is widely distributed, frequently encountered throughout its range, tolerates and even thrives in human-modified environments, and is considered to be facing no major immediate extinction threats.2 However, the Fer-de-Lance generally cannot survive in areas without vegetation cover.2 The substitution of traditional crops for mechanized agriculture is causing the species to be less frequently encountered or absent altogether in some areas.2,9 Other threats to the species include direct killing (terciopelos are usually killed on sight by humans alleging precautionary reasons),2,9,14 traffic mortality, and the decline in the abundance of prey. I will not endorse this statement, which seems to be at variance with the usual habits of serpents.”, Arthur Morelet, French naturalist, 1871.1, Fortunately, the antivenom available in Ecuador can, to a degree, neutralize the venom of Bothrops asper.57 However, the venom’s toxic and enzymatic activities differ drastically between populations35,58 and across age categories.38,39,59, For example, the protein similarities between the venom of two populations of Fer-de-Lance in Costa Rica may only be around 52%.58 Although serum therapy (antivenom) is the only recommended approach against a bite by a Terciopelo, extracts of some plants used by traditional “healers” may help alleviate and even neutralize the swelling and depletion of the blood’s coagulation factors caused by the envenomation.60.
