Russell’s viper is a species of venomous snake in the family Viperidae, the family which includes the venomous Old World Vipers. The species is found in Asia throughout the Indian subcontinent, much of Southeast Asia, southern China, and Taiwan.
Russell’s viper is also responsible for causing the most snakebite incidents and deaths among all venomous snakes. These snakes are deep yellow, tan, or brown in color, with three series of dark brown spots that run the length of the body.
Each of these spots has a black ring around it, the outer border of which is intensified with a rim of white or yellow. The head has a pair of distinct dark patches, one on each temple, together with a pinkish, salmon, or brownish V or X marking that forms an apex towards the snout.
Behind the eye is a dark streak, outlined in white, pink, or buff. The venter is white, whitish, yellowish, or pinkish, often with an irregular scattering of dark spots.
