A tiny, stocky snake that favors wooded environments. Along with ground-nesting birds like the skylark and meadow pipit, it also hunts lizards, small mammals, and other creatures. Although it can be black, it is typically gray or reddish brown. They have scales that partially enclose their eyes, giving them the appearance of lids and a V-shaped pattern on their heads.
A European viper bite will cause severe discomfort. Typically, the region around the bite will start to swell, and bite victims frequently describe feeling tingly. Additionally, adder bites have occasionally been lethal. As of the right moment, the species is not particularly concerning.
