Viperidae

IMGP2260

Vipers are usually found in the Americas, Africa and parts of Eurasia. A viper bite can be extremely painful but may not always be fatal. Although survival will depend on immediate treatment and the general overall health of the victim. A good indication of the amount venom a viper can inject is it’s size. Larger the size of the viper, larger the amount of venom.

    1. Ouch! Sorry to hear that, man. When I was working at a dam facility sometime last year, I had this strange sensation that something was crawling over my shoulder and as I turned around to look at what it might be, I found this large black scorpion trying to crawl into the neckline of my jumpsuit. I freaked out and jumped around like a mad man for a while… I was lucky I didn’t stung though.
