ABSTRACT
Viper, a poisonous snake. There are more than 180 species in the viper family; some are commonly called adders. Vipers have thick bodies and flat, triangular heads. Their fangs fold back against the roof of the mouth when not in use. Vipers live mainly on the ground, but some live in trees. They feed on frogs, lizards, and small mammals and birds. The females of most species bear live young. Pit vipers belong to a subfamily of the viper family.
