Saw-Scaled Viper

The Saw-Scaled Viper is one snake that people need to steer clear from. These snakes kill more people than any other snake each year. Even though this viper does not grow to be more than 1-3 feet long, the snake’s venomous bite can kill. The viper’s venom contains hemotoxins and cytotoxins. These toxins can cause the body to develop bleeding disorders which can lead to an intracranial hemorrhage. Sadly, most of the Saw-Scaled Vipers are found in areas without modern medicine so people that are bitten often suffer long and painful deaths.
