Ilha da Queimada GrandeIlha da Queimada Grande
Ilha da Queimada Grande, also known as Snake Island, one of many Snake Islands around the world, is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. It is administered as part of the municipality of Peruibe in the State of Sao Paulo. The island is small in size and has many different types of terrain, ranging from bare rock to rainforest. The island has a temperate climate. The island is the only home of the critically endangered, venomous Bothrops insularis (golden lancehead pit viper), which has a diet of birds. The snakes became trapped on the island when rising sea levels covered up the land that connected it to the mainland. This left the snakes to adapt to their environment, increase rapidly in population and render the island dangerous to public visitation. Queimada Grande is closed to the public in order to protect this snake population; access is only available to the Brazilian Navy and selected researchers vetted by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation, the Brazilian federal conservation unit. src: Wikipedia
