Adder, female

The Adder [or Viper] is one of three snakes found in the U.K. and, is our only venomous snake. It is found on Heathland and sunny woodland clearings etc. as long as the habitat is dry and receives a lot of sun with some scrub. The females are larger than males and, are brown and black in coloration, the males have grey and black scales.
