Although most people don’t think about it very much, the world is a dangerous place. Of course there is crime; there is disease. There are accidents and natural disasters – all bad – right? Yes! Of course – but because many of us now-a-days live in urban centers, we have forgotten how lethal the world can be. Once you step outside your front door and venture into woods, lakes, oceans or mountains – there’s a good chance you’ll have at least one creature you’ll have to watch out for, or suffer the consequences. Many animals will only attack when provoked, while others are on a one-man mission to bite you, infect you and generally ruin your life. So be careful out there!
Such a Viper
Preferring dry habitats, the Saw-Scaled snake likes to live in Africa and India. Coming out at night to catch prey, this is one snake you don’t want to meet in the dark. The special formula of toxins the Saw-Scaled viper delivers in a bite is so poisonous, it can cause blood disorders and hemorrhaging in the brain. The viper kills more people every year than any other snake.
