After watching this video you will know exactly why it’s important to avoid a viper bite.
In an effort to illustrated the deadliness of a viper bite, one filmmaker takes to the jungle with a high speed video camera and a ballon of hot water.
Check out this video and be sure to watch the super slow-mo version, which epitomizes the power of a viper bite.
Now that you’ve seen an expert show us how a deadly this bite can be, steer clear of these snakes in the wild. Did you see how fast the snake attacked the balloon? It was so fast that the water held its form for a brief moment after the ballon was pierced.
As noted by the filmmaker, the viper bite takes on more of a stabbing motion verses a downward strike. The viper was able to open its mouth completely so the fangs simply moved forward not downward as they approached the balloon.
