A video by Dr. Evan Antin about how to handle a jumping pit viper.

I spent time at a private serpentarium Costa Rica and worked with a thick Jumping Pit Viper, who gave me an excellent demonstration of his solenoglyphous venom delivery system (aka hinged, hollow fangs). Checks out how long those fangs are and how much venom can be delivered in ONE bite! Thanks for watching 🙂
