Long Nosed Viper

Found in southern Europe, mainly the Balkans, and parts of the Middle East.
Adults generally feed on small mammals and birds, whilst juveniles predominantly eat lizards. Feeding behavior changes and is influenced heavily by prey size.

This viper grows to a maximum total length (body + tail) of 95 cm (37.5 in), although individuals usually measure less than 85 cm (33.5 in). Maximum length also depends on locality,[vague] with northern forms distinctly larger than southern ones. The average total length is 50–70 cm (19.5–27.5 in) with reports of specimens over 1 m (39 in) in total length. Females are usually larger and more heavily[specify] built, although the largest specimens on record are males.
