The beautiful, extremely poisonous African bush viper.

Gaboon Viper Photograph by Michael Nichols A close-up shows the watchful eye of a Gaboon viper, Africa's largest viper. These highly venomous snakes can reach six feet (two meters) long and weigh 40 pounds (20 kilograms). Their fangs are the longest of any poisonous snake on Earth, growing up to two inches (five centimeters) long.

The Carpet Viper causes most of the snakebite deaths worldwide. Its poison can keep the victim’s blood from coagulating, and the person can bleed to death.
