The stunningly beautiful Russell’s Viper (Daboia russelli) is the snake credited with the most bites and human deaths each year. Despite its shy and retiring nature preferring to blend in with its habitat, it is often stepped over and upon by humans with which it often lives in close proximity. It is often found in grasslands and the fields where crops are grown where it feeds upon rodents. Rusell’s Viper spotted by Project Noah member Rivu Ghorai. Want to learn more about the viper family?
