The Dazzling And Dangerous Bush Viper

Bush Viper Snake

Don’t be fooled by its cheerful coloring. Found exclusively in rainforest regions of Subsaharan Africa, the bush viper’s venom is very hemotoxic, can lead to severe hemorrhaging and in one instance has proved fatal. At the moment, no bush viper-specific antivenin exists.
