April’s Challenge Animal is:
Bothriechis schlegelii or better know as: The Eyelash Viper!!!

Image

The Eyelash Viper, or ‘Bothriechis schlegelii’ is a forest dwelling reptile originating from southern Mexico through Central America to Columbia, Ecuador, and western Venezuela. The Viper can range from various colors such as yellow, green, and pinkish/red to brown, depending on the geographic origin of snake. The most brilliant of them all is the golden eyelash viper which has found its way around the world unintentionally through banana shipments. The eyelash viper is mostly nocturnal and is usually found in trees, low bushes, or vines.
The eyelash viper is named for the bristly scales above its eyes which look like a "hood" or eyelashes. It can be easily recognized by its color and triangular/heart-shaped head. They have a pair of heat-sensitive pits between the eyes and nostrils. The pupils are long vertical slits. Unusually, the scales of eyelash vipers are rough, which offers protection from the branches in their forest homes. Their diet mainly consists of frogs and lizards, but they can find hummingbirds to eat when they are blending into the bright forest flowers.

Extra Info:
Vipers use their sense of smell to find mates. The males go through an amazing thing called "the dance of the adders" when they are competing for the same female. They face each other with the head and the forepart of the body held erect, while trying to push the other to the ground. This sometimes can go on for hours. The interesting thing is that during this competing there is no biting from either contestant.
Vipers bear litters of 6 to 20 live young that range in length from 5 to 8 inches. The young look exactly like the adult except they are smaller.
:P

lol. I was watching a show on BBC about snakes and this one was just lovely so I had to pick it.
They are awesome to watch in action, that's why I put a few videos.

And I fell in love with the babies! They are just too cute!

Nice choice. I've already got one drawn. :P She still needs to be inked, cleaned up, and colored, though.

I saw the clip of the viper catching that hummingbird. ZOMG its a NINJA SNAKE.
Nice pick, whitemagician!
I've got some ideas floating around in my head.
Here's hoping I'll participate this month!

Cyangoose's entry:

Image

Name: Delphine
Age: 107
Rank: REGULAR
Description: Delphine is a professional poker player. She is a very patient player and very good at setting people up. She also dabbles in pool, but most of the locals won't even play her anymore because they know that once she has control of the table, there's no stopping her. She's a bit of a night owl and tends to spend her time out at casinos or bars.


Design concept: Delphine has gorgeously long eyelashes, which are actually blond, she just wears mascara to make them stand out even more. Her hair is patterned after the snake's scales. She has vertically slit snake eyes. I liked how some of the snakes had reddish markings, so she has reddish eye markings and a red glove to represent those. She got the snakebites because she thought they were fitting. I was actually thinking of having her have an eyelash viper as an accessory, but I saw a scarf kind of like that and thought it was probably a more practical option. The scarf is knit. Her slinky outfit represents the slender body. Her lounging is to represent how the snakes coil on trees and such. Some of her personality traits are also based on the descriptions provided for the snake.


Extra!:
Unbalanced arms are the result of having no reference for this pose. (-_-;) The sofa is pink because I saw a cool pic of one of these guys coiled up on a succulent pink flower.

Oooh Goose, I love her! Very sleek and sexy, like any good snake ace should be! I like her eye markings, I was thinking of doing something similar too. I love the piercings, and I really love that she's a professional poker player. I thought that was a cool way to go personality-wise.

WM I'm really sorry, but I don't think that I'll be able to participate this month. I really, really, really want to! But I have just had little to no inspiration lately. I can hardly even drum up a little bit of inspiration for dear Aegy, let alone my favorite snake. Life has been crazy, up and down. I'm exhausted, and really behind in Japanese(which is my only class pretty much =_=;;; ), and I really need to catch up on that before doing anything else. I still really want to design an Eyelash Viper Ace though, so when things settle down and my inspiration well isn't so dry, maybe I'll whip something up and post it in the MAC Shenanigans thread.
