temperament. They are widely used in traditional asian medicine, and are therefore widely collected. They are often collected and displayed in a fashion many western hot keepers would deem careless and dangerous. Denagkistrodon are among the most common vipers available in Chinas animal markets. Many deem this to be among the most dangerous of asian vipers, and yet it is displayed in wire crates and sold for as little as 200 RMB (27 USD). But I digress, in Africa there are many comparatively non-threatening vipers. Among which I would include, often to the scoffs of others, the Puff Adder. For you see, although this serpent envenomates many humans each year effects are often mostly localized, and mortality is (relatively) low. However, there are many less dangerous vipers occupying the continent. I have probably rambled on much more than you were looking for, but this is a topic I feel worthy of lighthearted discussion, if only for the sake of theory.
