Hey Jerry, do you know - where do the tree vipers brumate in Taiwan? In cliff cracks, hollow trees, stump holes?

cheers
I think they can hide anywhere, holes, trees, etc.

Thanks Jerry, I always enjoy your stuff! Other than tree vipers, pythons, monitors, and cobras - the herpetofauna is pretty ecologically similar to the SE USA. Ha ha ha, but really. Water snakes, tree frogs, rat snakes, skinks, newts etc...similar, but still exciting and different. cheers Thanks Ji...

From May to October is the best season to look for snakes in Taiwan.
But Deinagkistrodon or Ovophis are not common, so if you would like to find them you should have a good luck :lol:
The best place for herping is Baling(巴陵), Taiwanese herper's favorite place, there are so many snake species.
