'Extinct' Venomous Snake Rediscovered

Most people have never heard of the Albany adder—a small, venomous snake native to South Africa with a brilliantly patterned body and pointy eyebrows. The extremely rare reptile hadn't been seen in almost a decade, and scientists feared it was extinct—until now.

A team of herpetologists recently announced the discovery of a lifetime—four Albany adders, alive and well.

The expedition had set out last November to find the long-lost snake, and after a week of scouring bushes, lifting up rocks, and cautiously peeking into holes, team member Michael Adams spotted a six-inch-long female slithering across the road.

Hmm, well after recently reading Stolen World and The Lizard King, I guess I have to wonder who is going to be first person to legally *cough!* import some of these critters into the USA to offer them for sale.....
