Nose-horned viper - Vipera ammodytes

One of the most beautiful Vipers I have have photographed, this Nose-horned Viper is found in Southern Europe and parts of the Middle East. Toxic venom makes this species one of the most deadly in Europe. However, this species is not considered aggressive, or quick to bite. ©R.C.

(Photo: Ecologia Montenegrina)  A herpetologist in Macedonia found this unusual scene on Golem Grad. They suspect that a female nose-horned viper tried to eat a centipede. It got the centipede down its throat, but the centipede fought back, eventually killing the snake. Then the centipede began to eat its way out of the snake. The centipede almost succeeded, breaking free from the snake's body, when the snake's venom finally killed it.
