First meadow viper of the year


Although February is officially winter, as a result of today’s warm, springlike weather this year’s first viper came out from its burrow on one of the sites in Hanság. The snake was a 4-5 year-old male with 45 centimeter body length. Fun fact: while the air temperature was around 15 °C, during sunbathing the viper’s body temperature warmed up to 26,9 °C.
