Vipers[1] are a type of snake distinguished by the presence of a pair of hinged fangs that can inject venom when the viper bites another creature.[2]

Species of viper

Multiple kinds of viper exist, whose venom often causes different effects. Different species' toxins may induce paralysis, pain and swelling, blood clotting, or lethal heart failure.[2]

Giant vipers

Giant vipers are a particularly large type, and consequently produce more poison than smaller specimens do. The larger quantity of venom injected by their bites can cause more severe symptoms than a smaller viper's would.[3]
