The interior single cell in the brain, freeze fractured to reveal its organelles and imaged with a scanning electron microscope.  The nucleus is purple, DNA is pink, endoplasmic reticulum is green, ribosomes are blue, golgi apparatus is olive, vesicles are yellow, and mitochondria are red.  This image is part of a 600 megapixel mosaic, which can be seen in full resolution on gigapan.  The sample was prepared with the osmium maceration technique by Dr. Patrick Nahirney, and imaged, stitched and colorized by James Tyrwhitt Drake.

Green Jararaca
Bothriopsis bilineata (Viperidae), Syn. Bothrops bilineata, is a venomous pit viper from the Amazon. It is a sleek, green pit viper with a prehensile tail. Typical length is about 70 cm, although individuals up to 123 cm have been reported. Females are usually 10 to 20 cm longer than males.
This viper is potentially dangerous, as a single strike from this snake releases extremely toxic venom. Their venom contains pro-coagulant and anticoagulant agents and their bite can result in severe hemorrhaging. Bothriopsis bilineata has been reported to be the second most dangerous snake in the Amazon, behind only Bothrops atrox.
