3. Eyelash Viper
Eyelash Viper is a species of venomous pit viper in the family Viperidae. The eyelashes are thought to aid in camouflage, breaking up the snake’s outline among the foliage where it hides. The eyelash viper occurs in a wide range of colors, including red, yellow, brown, green, and even pink. It often has black or brown speckling on the base color. There is a myth among villagers in some small areas of South America that the eyelash viper will wink, flashing its “eyelashes” at its victim, following a vicious strike. Snakes are not physiologically capable of such behavior, as they have no eyelids and can not close their eyes.
