Beware of Russells vipers

Dear sir,

Russells Viper has become the name of fear for Bangladesh at present. So far these snakes have been found in more than 28 districts. All snakes in the world avoid humans. But Russells Viper is a little bit different. They are so quick to attack and according to the National Geographic, a Russells viper takes one-sixteenth of a second to complete the biting process.

Of the number of people who die from snakebites every year, a significant proportion of them die from the bites of Russells vipers. Their fangs are the second highest in the world. The Bengali equivalent of this terrible Russells Viper is Chandrabora. But more commonly known as Russells Viper.

Russells viper venom can sometimes be neutralized, but the bite site rots and the patient dies unexpectedly within a short period of time. Sometimes it is not possible to save the infected patient even after cutting the rotten part. So, beware of such venomous snakes.
