Rhombic Night Adder that we found when it struck at Jimmy's bicycle wheel when he was arriving at my spot in George, lucky it wasnt him. This Night adder was extremely aggressive, striking erratically and puffing constantly; check the video that is linked to this page. This snake belongs to the adder family Viperidae, it is unlike other adders in head shape as it does not have the typical diamond shape head found in adders. It is mildly toxic, but not deadly to humans.
