Habu facts, consequences of bite

An Okinawa Habu and Hime Habu perch on wood stumps in a tank on Kadena Air Base, Japan, May 29, 2013. These snakes are native to Okinawa and are extremely dangerous. There are also two introduced species of habu, the Taiwan and Sakishima Habu. These habu snakes were imported from various locations in Asia, and are a threat to the Okinawan bird and other animals.
