bushmaster definition and meaning

What is a "bushmaster"?

A bushmaster is a large and highly venomous snake native to the tropical forests of Central and South America. It is known for its impressive size, with some individuals reaching lengths of up to 10 feet or more. The bushmaster has a thick body and a distinctive triangular-shaped head. Its coloration can vary, ranging from brown to reddish-brown, allowing it to blend into its forest habitat. Bushmasters are primarily nocturnal and are excellent hunters, relying on their powerful venom to immobilize their prey. They feed on a variety of animals, including rodents, birds, and other snakes. Due to their venomous bite and potential danger to humans, bushmasters are regarded as one of the most feared snakes in their range.
