Probs commented on these on Fbook, but the fifth photo is wonderful as it shows the details of the scales.

A stunner of a find. Congrats.

And the other photos are pretty alright as well :)

Thanks for looking and commenting, Martti, Lou, PrimitiveTim, Daniel, Jeroen.

I have seen many Wagler's Viper but Hagen is a first for me. Not as common I guess.
