Fine art illustration of a South American Bushmaster (Lachesis muta.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The South American Bushmaster was completed on 8.7.2013. I’m starting to put together a collage of various species of venomous snakes of Central and South America – and I thought the bushmaster would be a great addition to this collection of snakes. I got a great reference photo from the talented wildlife photographer Jake Scott and went for it. The scales are interesting because they’re beaded on the top side of the snake, and become more typical towards the lower part of the body.
