An encounter between a builder and a viper
A builder is shocked when he finds a viper under a piece of floorboard.
During the construction of a house, a builder picks up a piece of floorboard and sees a shocked viper. When we arrived, the builders were gathered around the viper. They were going to kill it by throwing a big rock at it. We talked to them and they allowed us to carry the viper away to a forest close to the construction site, after taking some photographs.
