Gaboon Viper Bitis gabonica is a venomous viper species found in the rainforests and savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa. This is not only the largest member of the genus Bitis, but also the world's heaviest viperid and it has the longest fangs and the highest venom yield of any venomous snake. Two subspecies are currently recognized, including the nominate race described here. Description Adults average 122152 cm (4 to 5 feet) in length with a maximum of 205 cm (81 in) for a specimen collected in Sierra Leone. The ***es may be distinguished by the length of the tail in relation to the total length of the body: approximately 12% for males and 6% for females. Adults, especially females, are very heavy and stout. One female had the following dimensions: Total length174 cm (69 in) Head width12 cm (4.7 in) Girth 37 cm (14.65 in) Weight (empty stomach)8.5 kg (19 lbs) In their description of B. gabonica, Spawls et al.. (2004) give an average length of 80130 cm (32 to 51.5 in), with a maximum size of 175 cm (69.3 in), saying the species may possibly grow larger still.

Gaboon New Coasterdynamix invert called Gaboon. Named after the world's longest and heaviest viper, Gaboon tops out at 2 feet, features four inversions, and travels through three, epic, banked curves. The element's on Gaboon are as follows: A raptor-like drop, a vertical loop, a cobra roll, an overbanked curve, a corkscrew, and a curve back to the lift hill. Gaboon was inspired by Raptor at Cedar Point and Silver Bullet at Knott's Berry Farm. Gaboon's layout was originally intended for knex, but I reverted to coasterdynamix as knex would be virtually impossible for me. Just so I don't get any stupid comments, the Gaboon Viper is the longest viper because the King Cobra is technically an Elapid and is not in the viper family. The song in the video is "In The End" by Linkin Park. I do not own the song. I know the camera can be shaky at times and I apologize for this. Please give me feedback on my layout, trackwork, pacing etc. (positive or negative) Follow me on facebook:
