Family: Viperidae
Genus: Trimeresurus
Binomial name : Trimeresurus malabaricus (Jerdon, 1854)
The scientific name of Malabar Pit Viper is Tremerisurus Malabaricus . The head of this snake has a triangular shape. The venom of this snake is not poisonous enough to take the life of its victim. The reason for this is that the teeth of this snake are small and so the quantity of the venom injected into the body will be less. The treatment for the bite of this particular snake can extend up to 14 days. If the bite is severe then the bitten area will be swollen, painful and the patient may also experience chillness. The bitten area may develop into a deep wound. For children below the age of 15 the bite may be dangerous.
