The Gaboon viper may not be the fastest or most venomous in the snake world, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t incredibly deadly. This female Gaboon shows just how ferocious they can be when she strikes an unsuspecting bird before it knows what’s happening. Even though she misses her first bite she quickly recalculates and bites again – two bites in a single strike – where she sinks her fangs into the bird and ends the struggle before it ever began.
