Description : Most are relatively small, primarily arboreal species, with thin bodies and prehensile tails. They are typically green in color, but some species also have yellow, black, orange or red markings.

Feeding : Their diet includes a variety of other animals, including rodents, lizards, amphibians and birds.

Reproduction : Like most viper species, they are ovoviviparous.

Venom : Their venom varies between species in toxicity, but all are primarily hemotoxic and considered to be medically significant to humans. Urban legends of a "Two step viper" have been created around this genus suggesting that a certain species has the toxicity to kill a person within seconds, a reasonable explanation however is that there is a possibility of major allergic reaction to toxins which might have been misconceived as a deadly new species' venom.

Found : Peth Fort - Maharashtra - India.

Date : July - 2009.

Camera : Canon S5 IS (Inbuilt Lense) - Semi Pro.

Fine detail and those striking rich greens really catch the eye of the beholder.

Your picture strongly suggests that homochromy seems to be the best asset of this viper like its next of kin worldwide. It helps them get the best of both worlds, enhancing their capacity to hide and increasing their chances to surprise a prey. We tend to have black, grey and sometimes brown ones which blend so well with their environment that you easily mix them up with a root protruding from the ground when they are not coiled up.
