But for sure, this horn makes it easy to recognize and looks exotic huh
The shape of the head tends to be triangular in shape, and the vertical pupils of a cat's eye and also the scales that are not the same as those of other snakes are slightly keeled, which helps it walk on sandy areas. The Horned Viper lives in desert areas or rocky deserts, especially the Sahara Desert. In addition to Africa, it can also be found in several areas in Arabia and Israel.

It's also known as the tent-making bat because of its habit of turning the leaves of the heliconia plant and making a dwelling or nest under it. These leaves provide protection for these small animals from rain, hot sun, and predators.
However, the stems of the heliconia plant are not strong. So, when predators approach them, their tents will sway and provide a warning for Honduran bats to get out of harm's way. Besides Honduras, they can also be found in Central American countries, such as Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.
ANDEAN BIRD COCK OF THE ROCK
Cock of the rock is a kind of beautiful bird of medium size (20-40 cm) from South America. This bird gets its name, from its nesting place in a rocky hill area on the edge of the forest. This bird consists of 2 species, namely: the Guiana Cock of the Rock Rupicola rupicola which is spread in the highlands of Guyana including Suriname, East Columbia, southern Venezuela, Amazonia Brazil, and the Andean Cock of The Rock Rupicola peruvianus which is spread in the Andes mountain forest area which includes: Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.
The Guiana Cock of the Rock is one of the most beautiful and strange birds in South America. The whole body of this bird is covered by very striking orange feathers. The head is equipped with a semi-circular crown which is very unusual for the birds. But the strangest of all is the mating ritual during the breeding season, which is both complicated and unique
About 30-40 male birds, will gather together in a kind of field at the edge of the forest. This field is in the form of a demonstration area consisting of low tree branches or vacant land that is clean of dry leaf litter. All birds will try their best to dance, developing their beautiful body feathers and crown.
Rotating movements, pecking, and chirping with a certain tone will be made by males to attract females. So extreme is the display of feathers that when the crown on the head and the feathers on the back expand, this species doesn't look like a bird anymore. The female bird who is interested will come closer and choose one of the males to mate with her
While the second type Andean cock of the Rock is slightly larger than its cousin in Guyana. The distinctive feature of this bird lies in its crown which is like the crest of an 80s rock singer and the color of its bluish-gray back feathers. This bird's diet consists of fruits, insects, and small reptiles such as lizards and frogs. During mating season, fewer alert birds of this species will be preyed upon by eagles, pumas, jaguars, ocelot cats, and boa constrictors. Nests are made at the mouth of a cave or a high hill wall.
