Don't get closer to him!! Russell's viper is among the Top 10 Deadliest Snakes in the World. While attacking, it coils tightly, hisses and strikes with such a high speed that its victim gets little chance to escape. Its venom is of hemotoxin type, which is a powerful coagulant, causing damage to blood cells and tissues
