Green Palm Viper (Bothriechis lateralis)
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

If you go to Monteverde reserve in Costa Rica, you can meet the Green Palm Viper (Bothriechis lateralis). It is a common arboreal poison snake species in the cloud forests of Central America and spends its time in the thick foliage of trees and shrubbery, waiting for small birds, rodents, lizards and frogs to hunt. It uses its camouflaged coloration to blend in with the vegetation, striking quickly when a mentioned animal gets too close. Therefore rarely poses a danger to people although it could bite only if strongly provoked. However, humans who are bitten can become very sick but rarely die from the venom.
