The bushmaster snake’s habitat attracts prey for it to survive. The snake lives in a hole underground in forested places near water, which attracts animals to eat and helps it hide because it has a brown-black diamond pattern. It often eats animals like birds or small rodents, attacking them with large amounts of venom. The snake grows to be 2-3 meters long. Human population growth and climate change will change the snake’s appearance and hunting. The temperature increase will make water evaporate, causing animals to leave the area or die, so the snake will get smaller. It will be a powerful small snake with more venom. Climate change will make the trees disappear, and the snake’s scales will be browner. Also, because of human overpopulation, a smaller size will help it hide. The bushmaster snake may survive although food may still be a problem.
