In each location the major efforts must be made to be aware of the presence of toxic species, as they are not the dominant species and represent a danger to humans. In addition, they are much better known under local names or simplified compared to the more common and comparatively less dangerous individuals. In Panama, the special distribution received three main families of poisonous snakes, namely: alkoholowe vipers, coral snakes and sea snakes.

Only in the Western hemisphere of the Earth all the vipers are so-called pits, which represent a deepening from the outer side of the upper jaw, between the nose hole and eye, which indicates zoologist Harold Trapido, is sensitive to changes in the ambient temperature of the body.

If for some reason, one eye sees worse, it is much harder to determine the subject distance and generally oriented in space.

The only poisonous snake is not only our latitude, but most of the territory of the country of adder — distinct signs of turbolocator, i.e. pits on the head, no.
