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. Thanks to its incredible sensitivity, this hole helps to locate and attack warm-blooded animals (of course, when the predator is close enough to potenitally victims). It is considered, among other things, that such amharinya bodies along the lower jaw perform the same functions and have common Boas (or devouring snakes).
